    Hey all,

    Thank you for reading this. Hopefully you can help. I need to create a cron job on cpanel to a remote ftp server to pull a csv off every hour and place it in the local public_html directory. Is this possible?

    If so how would I go about doing this please?

    Hello,

    Yes, you should first develop the custom script that completes that action, and then use the "Cron Jobs" option in cPanel to ensure it runs automatically at set intervals. The feature is documented at:

    Cron Jobs - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
