Are vBulletin "cron jobs" executed for (all?) non-logged in HTTP requests to a board?

    What you're missing is that all web hosting packages don't allow you to execute server-side scripts like that, but rather simply provide you with FTP access and that's it. In that case you cannot use the vbcron.php file, and instead you have to McGyver yourself a script-based client-side-only solution to automate the vBulletin Scheduled Tasks processing, which is what we just did here.

      I'd find a new hosting provider. I have had SSH and Crontab support on every hosting provider that I have had in the last 20 years.
