    Hi Folks:

    I've been using FeedWordPress for a couple of weeks now... its a very nice RSS agregator.

    The author has a way he says that it can be updated using a cron tab. Here is the code he gives:
    */15 * * * * curl --silent

    I have tried for a couple of hours different variations and cant get it to work. My blog is at (example):

    My server uses cPanel 11. The main error I get is: "No such file or directory"

    I have tried it with and without parenthesis, without curl, with index.php before the "?update_feedwordpress=1" etc.

    If I can't get this to work, what would I use to have the cron run the home page of the site (the second method this plugin uses to get updates is when someone visits the home page it will cause an update to be triggered).

    I am using cPanel 11 x3. I also am running a VPS so I have full access to WHM if needed.

    Thanks for any help.

    Please check if your PHP is compiled with curl support, if not recompile it with curl and it should work fine. Alternatively you could make a trial and replace curl with wget.

    Best Regards,
