Yes, totally. I have it set up but it does not work well because I use cloudflare and the loopback is broken due to security certificate issues (I don’t buy one but use cloudflare’s free one instead, a workaround is using your VPS’s hosts file to make it use cloudflare ip to reach your domain, silly, I know… alternatively you can use the -k flag on your curl inside your crontab file).
This is what I have on my crontab:
# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron. # # Each task to run has to be defined through a single line # indicating with different fields when the task will be run # and what command to run for the task # # To define the time you can provide concrete values for # minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon), # and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').# # Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system # daemon's notion of time and timezones. # # Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through # email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected). # # For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts # at 5 a.m every week with: # 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/ # # For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8) # # min hour dayofmonth month dayofweek command */10 * * * * curl -s -k https://domain.tld/?s2member_auto_eot_system_via_cron=1 >/dev/null 2>&1 30 * * * * curl -s -k https://domain.tld/wp-cron.php >/dev/null 2>&1
Replace “domain.tld” with your own domain
