It necessary to run the Cron jobs?

edited February 2012 in Bugs and Errors
Hi Damian

seems to me that something is not right in my installation but I have no idea where the error, because I installed without any problem, no errors and even do the upload successfully, but no video appears, I checked the TEMP folder and the videos are there, gives me the feeling that something must be done for them to be converted.

I am clipbucket installed on the same server and convert quickly, is it necessary to run the Cron jobs?

and congratulation for this great work


  • Hello Charlie,

    To answer you question, no, cron jobs are neither needed nor used by CumulusClips.

  • Hi Damian

    I have done the test... there is the result:

    /root$ whereis php
    php: /usr/bin/php /etc/php.d /etc/php.ini /usr/lib/php /usr/lib/php.ini /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/lib/php /usr/local/lib/php.ini,v /usr/local/lib/php.ini /usr/include/php /usr/share/man/man1/php.1.gz

    /root$ /usr/local/bin/php -v

    I can not understand what is wrong.

    thanks for the help

    For others reading this, the solution to his issue was that posted in the link above. Specifically to change the 'PHP Path' in the Admin Panel.
