How to create cron jobs on Windows server with the Windows task scheduler.
The first step is to open Windows task scheduler and click Create Task
Make sure Enabled is ticked at the bottom.
Had I put the start time at 12:15:00 PM it would run next at 1:15:00 PM, then 2:15:00 PM etc.
Go across to the Actions tab and click the New button at the bottom
The action is what happens for our scheduled event.
To make a cron job you will need Wget, download it here. I put wget.exe in the C drive, this is the program being referenced. The argument that gets run with Wget is
-q -O nul http://127.0.0.1/ourscript.php.
-q is quite mode,
-O nul means output into “nothing” and
http://127.0.0.1/ourscript.php will be the file being called.
