Do I need to set a cron job on cpanel?

Do I need to set a cron job on cpanel?

Hi,

 

In the documents it says

You can control the execution and scheduling of Magento cron jobs from the Admin of your store.

Does this mean I don;t need to set up a cron job in cpanel?

 

 

Thanks

Re: Do I need to set a cron job on cpanel?

To be able to manage cron from the Magento admin panel also you need to setup cron using cPanle or ssh.

 

You have to set cron.php or cron.sh in Magento root to run periodically.

 

You can refer Google for setting up cron in Magento
