    I'm installing Sendy to send my email and according to their instruction, I need to create cronjobs to schedule list import as well as mailing.

    Code:
    php /home/nginx/domains/quantnet.com/public/sendy/import-csv.php > /dev/null 2>&1
    */1 * * * * php /home/nginx/domains/quantnet.com/public/sendy/import-csv.php > /dev/null 2>&1
    After I did those commands, and run less /etc/crontab or crontab -l, it does not show any cronjob.

    I even use the absolute path for php which is /usr/local/bin/php
    I'm curious to see if there is a specific way to create cronjob in centminmod?

    Solved.
    Edit /etc/crontab/ and add the line to the bottom
    */1 * * * * php /home/nginx/domains/quantnet.com/public/sendy/import-csv.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    how are you editing crontab jobs ?

    Code:
    crontab -e
    is correct command to edit and initialise new crontabs :)

    @Andy I just bought a sendy license as well Sendy to setup an official newsletter for Centmin Mod related mailings :)

    Was wondering what purpose you using import mailing for exactly ?

    I have a 30K list from my forum so I need to import it to my sendy. They use a cron job to schedule the importing.
