10 >My feeds

With this interface you have two types of files.

For catalogs under 1,000 products, you can use Fly output URL

 

For catalogs with over 1000 products you have to use XML file and CRON TASK

 

CRON tasks are usually set up by editing a crontab file and adding a line.


IMPORTANT : The CRON’s line you’re going to configure must be executed as a web server request by prefixing your line with lynx application (text browser), or any wget / curl commands that implies to use the web server engine. This allows that your request will be successfully executed in the web server context and get all the PHP environment variables as needed for your PrestaShop execution. DO NOT put the physical path of the script, and only put the script URL that you can find in the module’s back-office.


For example:


0 2 * * * lynx -dump http://www.monsite.com/modules/btbingads/cron.php?id_shop=1&token=b28282fe810cb42e136fbc8bf533b805 > /dev/null


This example will execute the URL every night at 2:00AM (this precise example requires that the text based browser Lynx be installed on the server).
