I have application built in Zend Framework 2. I would like to set cron job for updating my products. I know scripts such as this should be run from outside of public folder, but unfortunately my script in cron needs to use framework files.
How can I do this?
The only way I figured out is to run script from outside of public folder then add some hash or password and redirect to
I strongly recommend to use CLI for such requirement.
Add a console route to your application module's
array( 'router' => array( 'routes' => array( ... ) ), 'console' => array( 'router' => array( 'routes' => array( 'cronroute' => array( 'options' => array( 'route' => 'updateproducts', 'defaults' => array( 'controller' => 'Application\Controller\Console', 'action' => 'update' ) ) ) ) ) ) );
Now open the terminal and
$ cd /path/to/your/project $ php public/index.php updateproducts
Thats all. Hope it helps.
