  • Question about cron jobs

    I'm currently debating between this vbulletin and another forum software. I really like the rss feeds importer. One of my reservations with vbulletin is cron jobs. I've never dealt with cron jobs before. Please give me an idea exactly what cron jobs are for and do I need them? Can this be done manually from time to time rather than have automated cron jobs built in?

    vBulletin doesn't use actual unix cron jobs, it uses a scheduled task system that is triggered when users browse your forum.

    They do some routine maintenance and cleanup, and you don't actually ever hvae to do anything with them. If you really want you can also disable them though, and run them manually.
