I am using Magento 1.9.01 version.
If customers register on my site, they get an e-mail -> its okay.
But if they order something, they do not get confirmation e-mail and also if I send it via admin panel, also invoices -> not okay.
I do not have cPanel and downloaded putty and logged it with SSH. On the internet are a lot of codes for seting up cronjobs, each 5 minutes, system is sending e-mails.. but
I entered this code at first:
Than this code with my own code:
*/5 * * * * /var/www/pfad/zu/magento/cron.sh
Result: No such file or directory
Your cron should probably look something like one of these.. the first part e.g. the */5 * * * * means that the cron will run *every* 5 minutes.
The second pard.. e.g /bin/sh (etc..) is the execution path or path to PHP on your sever - these can usually be provided by your host since they can be different depending on your server setup.
The 3rd part . e.g. /[magento_path]/cron.php (or cron.sh) is the full path to the cron file on your server.
*/5 * * * * /bin/sh /[magento_path]/cron.sh */5 * * * * /bin/bash /[magento_path]/cron.sh */5 * * * * /usr/bin/php /[magento_path]/cron.php */5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php -f /[magento_path]/cron.php
Feel free to try the 4 setups above - however I would recommend contacting your host and they can inform you how to set the cron correctly depending on your setup.
Just an addition to the above; you mentioned you used PuTTY to connect to your server.. once you've located your cron.php file.. e.g cd yoursite/public_html - then you can type pwd and this wil give you the full path to the current directory you are in - this is useful for checking that the path to your cron file is correct (the 3rd part of the cron setup)
thanks for your answers - I will try it out today.
I know my path -> checked it with info.php
From the info you sent me in your PM - you could try the following (the forums wouldn't validate the HTML when I tried to send you this via the PM)
