The following article demonstrates how to set up a scheduled task (cron job) in Plesk Obsidian and Plesk Onyx. This is required for some sites which require a scheduled task for mailouts, updates and any other maintenance tasks.
- Once you have logged in to Plesk, click on the “Websites and Domains” tab.
- From the right hand menu, click on “Scheduled Tasks”.
- Click on “Add Task”.
- Enter the relevant values for the task you wish to set up. Ensure that the option “Active” is ticked. Click OK.
Note: The format required is in standard Cron notation. You can easily generate this notation here: corntab.com
- Now, you should see the task you created under the scheduled task list.
