Schedule a Campaign
Note: We recommend setting up CRON to send your newsletters. Newsletters sent via CRON have the added ability to automatically resume sending when your server times out. You'll also be able to schedule emails.
You haven't set up CRON yet, but that's okay. You can still send newsletters right now. But keep in mind that you won't be able to navigate around Sendy until sending is complete. Also, you'll need to manually resume sending (with a click of a button) if your server times out.
Setup CRON now →
I did setup Cron jobs on your server. I'm not sure why it isn't working. Can you do me a favor and post the instructions here?
You can get the instructions by clicking 'Setup CRON now →'
Add a cron job
To schedule campaigns or to make sending more reliable, add a cron job with the following command.
php /home/email/public_html/scheduled.php > /dev/null 2>&1
This command needs to be run every 5 minutes in order to check the database for any scheduled campaigns to send. You'll need to set your cron job with the following.
(Note that adding cron jobs vary from hosts to hosts, most offer a UI to add a cron job easily. Check your hosting control panel or consult your host if unsure.).
*/5 * * * * php /home/email/public_html/scheduled.php > /dev/null 2>&1
Once added, wait around 5 minutes. If your cron job is functioning correctly, you'll see the scheduling options instead of this modal window when you click on "Schedule this campaign?".
I've added above cron job. Please check if it's working.
