    Are you using WordPress Cron or cPanel/operating system Cron? The WordPress Cron requires traffic through the site to trigger it.

    I am using a PHP script that has been working well for me. I have a VPS and I don’t know if my method will work on a hosted account. I didn’t have any luck with any warmer plugin.

    I cannot give you support on how to run a cronjob. Please ask your webhost how to set up a “wget” or a “curl” cronjob.

    Hi,

    GoDaddy shared hosting works, use 1 of the 2 commands below.

    Command 1: Will send you an email with the output of the crawl that ran and the results will appear in the WordPress dashboard page for the Warm Cache plugin.

    /usr/bin/wget -O - -q -t 1 http://www.[Domain].com/?warm_cache=[Magic]

    Command 2: Will run but then trash the output. You won’t know what happened via email but the results will appear in the WordPress dashboard page for the Warm Cache plugin.

    /usr/bin/wget -O - -q -t 1 http://www.[Domain].com/?warm_cache=[Magic] >/dev/null 2>&1

    Note: Obviously you change the {Domain} and {Magic} values to match the url identified to be used in the WordPress dashboard page for the Warm Cache plugin.

    Want to know more then read the wget manual.

    Hope this helps,
    John.
