Using Joonla 3.7 I used to get a warning about the cron job not running that's because my provider does not allow jobs

I could do the cronjob manually by clicking on the warning and all was fine to me

After updating Joomla to 3.8.3 I cannot find the link to cron manually

Can you please tell me if this can be done in the control-panel?


thank you for your reply.

sorry, I do not think I used a special plugin ; when logging in in Joomla we get the warning popup about cron: Cron Not Running Last cron run at 7 december 2017 17:41 uur PM. View details and manage alerts

in the same popup klicking the link gave another page where I could run cron manually

maybe because in Joomla we have civicrm installed?

    The Joomla CMS core has no inbuilt cron tasks to run, so I presume you're talking about a specific component or plugin that has a cron script to run? – jamesgarrett Jan 28 '18 at 22:35

    Bingo. CiviCRM has a job queue that should be run with a Cron. You may find the answer to your question here civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/cron-job – jamesgarrett Jan 29 '18 at 21:16
  • @ "bingo" thank you! problem solved: manually cron link can be found in civicrm planned jobs – Rob Ouwerkerk Jan 31 '18 at 6:31

All PHP crons are activated by an URL.

You can simply determine which the task url for the cron you want to use and access by browser.

Anyway, in the net exists a lot of solutions to externally activate crons (knowing the url).
