CRON script for backup failure check


This option is only available in Akeeba Backup Professional.

The CRON script is located in cli/akeeba-check-failed.php, and must be run from the command-line PHP interface (PHP CLI).

In order to schedule a backup failure check, you will have to use the following command line to your host's CRON interface:

/usr/local/bin/php /home/USER/webroot/cli/akeeba-check-failed.php

where /usr/local/bin/php is the path to your PHP CLI executable and /home/USER/webroot is the absolute path to your web site's root. You can get this information from your host.

The same considerations and scheduling information as the backup CRON script apply.
