Hello,

I have some crons I am trying to import from Webmin to cpanel account. The cron on Webmin looks like:

/home/user/cron-defs/do-wget-url util.sec/email_sender/email_sender.php email_sender.html

Trying to duplicate this on cPanel:

wget -b http://www.domain.com/util.sec/email_sender/email_sender.php email_sender.html

Gives:

--2016-03-07 13:18:32-- http://email_sender.html/
Resolving email_sender.html (email_sender.html)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address 'email_sender.html'

Weird thing is that this work on the webmin server when it looks like it shouldn't. Don't quite get it.

Hello :)

You will need to convert the cron jobs to the proper format when adding them to a cPanel server. The following third-party URL offers advice on how to configure a cron job with "wget":

Thank you.
