Support » Plugin: Task Scheduler » Run PHP script doesn’t work

  • Hi!
    I’m trying to set up a fixed interval schedule to run a PHP script, but it doesn’t run.
    The “Nest run”-time doesn’t update either.

    I have the following setup
    Run every 10 minutes
    Action: Run PHP-script
    Custom action: None
    Argument (optional): None
    PHP script path: URL to the php-file with the script

    Here is the scrpt inside the PHP-file

    //set the connection variables
    $hostname = "";
    $username = "";
    $password = "";
    $database = "";
    $filename = "";
    //connect to mysql database
    $connection = mysqli_connect($hostname, $username, $password, $database) or die("Error " . mysqli_error($connection));
    mysqli_query($connection, "TRUNCATE TABLE <code>Pristabell</code>");
    // open the csv file
    $fp = fopen($filename,"r");
    //parse the csv file row by row
    while(($row = fgetcsv($fp,"500",",")) != FALSE)
        //insert csv data into mysql table
        $sql = "INSERT INTO Pristabell (Produkt, Pris, Rabattkr, Rabattprosent, Lagerstatus, Butikk, TAGS) VALUES('" . implode("','",$row) . "')";
        if(!mysqli_query($connection, $sql))
            die('Error : ' . mysqli_error($connection));
    //close the db connection

    PHP script path: URL to the php-file with the script

    It should not be a URL but a path. You should set it with the file selector which pops up when you click on the folder icon next to the input field.

    Tested, but it still not running.
    See the attached image. Next run was 15 hours ago…

    You can check whether the server heartbeat is running by going to Dashboard -> Task Scheduler -> Settings -> Server Heartbeat. Make sure it is on. And see if the time is constantly updated in the Status field as you reload the page in one minute.

    If the server heartbeat is not running, scheduled tasks will not get triggered.

    I found the problem.
    When I deactivated WP Maintenance Mode plugin, its working

    Don’t know why, but maybe you do 🙂

    Thanks anyway for a great plugin (Y)
