I'm trying to setup a cron job, but part of the command requires me to point to the PHP executable. Is this something I can do on shared linux hosting? I only see examples for Plesk.
This is the example command provided on the phpservermon website.
Notice in their example they point to user/bin/php, but I don't see something like that in my user directory.
*/15 * * * * root /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/phpservermon/cron/status.cron.php
Looks like the answers was
Although depending on what you need, you may not want php-cgi, but all the other PHP executables are there - php-cli and php
Simply put 'the php executable' is the program you wish to execute (run). These would be stored in the /bin/ directory, binary files!
I hope the following puts you on the right path. Please leave a kudos if this helps:
