At bluehost.com, for the cheaper hosting options, I have ssh access but no cron access (something about shared hosting?). Magento 1.9 has been working okay without cron for years but I want to upgrade to Magento 2.X.
Is it possible to run a Magento 2.X store (very small store - 5 sales per week) without cron? Is there an option to run the "cron" tasks when people connect to the store? That's what wordpress does. By default it runs the cron tasks on every web connection but you can disable that and put the task into cron. It's an option. Does Magento 2 have this option? Where is it?
