Scheduling a bit of code to run at specific times is a common requirement of most projects. With VPS services, you would SSH into your server and configure "cron jobs".
Servd make this a bit easier by allowing you to add "Scheduled Commands" directly in the dashboard:
Select your Servd project
Click the environment in the sidebar you'd like to add a scheduled command to (e.g. Production, Staging, etc).
Click the "Commands" sub-navigation option.
Under the "Scheduled Craft CLI Commands" section, you should see all your active scheduled commands. To add a new one, input the command you'd like to run and the schedule pattern into the inputs under "Add a Command".
Click the "Add button"
When you're ready, sync your project to deploy the scheduled command to your environment.
Types of commands #
Servd offers two types of scheduled commands:
- ./craft console commands.
- wget commands to make a web request to a specified URL.
Note: with both types you don't need to specify ./craft or wget as part of your command body.
