Automation set up
Some features of your script require a cron job to be set up. Most automated features are linked to the cron table, such as:

Click the Cron Jobs link under your cPanel account and choose Advanced (Linux Style). Enter your email address for collecting information about cron execution. Copy the command to be run as cron:
/usr/local/bin/php -q /home/YOUR_USERNAME/public_html/cron.php
Replace YOUR_USERNAME with your cPanel username then schedule the time for this job to execute every 5 minutes.
Apply the changes and click Back to return to the Cron Management page
