Did you set up your Cronjobs succesfully?
Bazzabingbong Aug 18 '11
i have loads of cron jobs setup mate, need an idea on which one i should be looking for.

Benjamin Aug 18 '11
It just should be the main Cronjob: ow_cron/run.php
Is it configured the right way? It should be "/usr/local/bin/php /home/yoursite/domains/yoursite.com/public_html/ow_cron/run.php" and set to * * * * (every minute, hour, day, week of the month)

is this the same one that sets the automatic updates as well
Benjamin Aug 18 '11
I don't know for sure. What I do know is that it is the most important cronjob for your Oxwall-powered site.

Sometimes you need to add a line in your root .htaccess to get the cronjob to work. Add the following line to see if it helps...

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/ow_cron/run.php

its cool mate its sorted now, it worked with the first cron you gave me and it gave me auto updates too thanks mate.
Benjamin Aug 18 '11
Perfect! You're welcome, I'm glad I helped you out!

path statement worked for me too thanks

This thing really works! Users online - is now not online! :D
As I understand - users online will be refreshed every time when you are refreshing a page?

Where in root .htaccess does this line go?  I put at the beginning, but not sure if that's right.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/ow_cron/run.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .*/http-bind
RewriteRule (.*) /http-bind [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/ow_updates/index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/ow_updates/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|\.php|\.html|\.htm|\.feed|\.raw|/[^.]*)$  [NC]

RewriteRule (.*) index.php

Also, I want to be sure I understand...when user closes browser without logging out, does cron job log them out automatically?
