Trying to set up a cron job to update stats daily...

Discussion in 'Keyword Tracker' started by AfterHim.com, Jun 11, 2005.

    This is what my daily email says:

    /bin/sh: line 1: http://username:password@www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/?action=lookupall: No such file or directory

    I have my username and password correctly inputted. Did I do something wrong? I can go basic or advanced (unix) and I used basic.

    I set it for 7:30 in the morning.
    SEMrush
    Anyone know what I am doing wrong? I've never used a cron job before.

    Thanks,

    brandon

    No, I had to fill in boxes...should the link have quotation marks around it? Mine doesn't.

    Yeah, the command should be like so:

    curl "http://login:password@www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/?action=lookupall"
    Code (markup):

    Ok, I added quotations around that line through the cpanel script.

    We'll see tomorrow if it works.

    Thanks,

    Shawn,

    Today I got the same message No such file or directory

    I used quotation marks on this one.

    Let me check around Google...is there anything else you can think of? Am I linking the right page?

    Will probably have to ask them if you don't have shell access.

    Shawn...I meant there is no page when I put my login/password in.

    If you need, I can pm you my username and password. Does it work for your login/pass?

    Check the URL... the username and password are supposed to be replaced with yours.
