[resolved] Editing wp-o-matic cron command (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm having a problem with my rss feed, the fetch works fine with Word Press but the actual cron job fails with this message "curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'wp-o-matic'". I think the problem is with my wp-o-matic cron command under the options. initially I posted the command from Word Press as was given:

    Unix cron
    Cron command:
    */20 * * * * /usr/bin/curl http://quickfixweightlossdiets.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cron.php?code=xxxxxxxx

    WebCron-ready URL:
    http://quickfixweightlossdiets.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cron.php?code=xxxxxxxx

    I think the cron command characters at the beginning "*/20 * * * * /" should be removed in order to make it work but there's no way of editing it. Does anyone know how to edit the cron command code.

    Thanks Phildazz

    I solved the cron job problem by completely removing the cron job fron my HostGator ==> CPanel ==> Advanced == Cron job. If you're using wp-o-matic for posting content to your blog then you don't need to run a cron job; it will only clash with wp-o-matic and prevent it from posting by producing an error. Wp-o-matic works like a DreamDancer on its own.
