For those that want to install SuiteCRM on Bluehost.com shared hosting services.
You must setup cron to allow SuiteCRM to perform several functions via Schedulers. One example is retrieving inbound email.
I looked around quite a bit to find instructions specific to Bluehost and I did not find any. Since im not a linux newb by any means I SSH’ed in and found out what I needed to know, so maybe this may save someone a few steps/headaches.
When using SuiteCRM cron.php needs to be run via the php command line interpreter, so the command you are looking for is
If installed the root of your domain
If installed in a Subfolder
php-cli /home/[username]/public_html/[path to suitecrm]/cron.php
Where username is your hosting username which is usually some abbreviation of your primary domain name, and [path to suitecrm] is the path to your suitecrm installation.
Once you have the correct command line
- Log into your cPanel
- Scroll down to Advanced Click on Cron Jobs
- Paste your created command into the command box and click add new cron job
It should appear at the bottom like * * * * [pasted command]
Your all set I hope you enjoy SuiteCRM as much as I do.
NOTE to admin … I think you should sticky this.
