    i'm trying to run the wp-o-matic cron on my site hosted at 000webhost

    the path i'm trying to run on cron is
    'wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/cron.php?code=XXXXXXXX'

    but the damn thing keeps telling me that whitespaces and special characters are not allowed

    so can some1 pls tell me how to setup a cron with parameters on 000webhost

    thanks

    thanks for replying ccpro, but that doesn't help me
    000webhost doesn't use cpanel

    contact their support...
    and after that you'd have to deal with the duplicate post problem of wp-o-matic as well :)

    Save your time ... I asked them and they told me to upgrade if i want help. You can use a free cron host i can remember where . But i'll find it when i get home .

    Alternatively you could make a cron CURL the other script, so you'd basically set up a cron on one server and run other crons :)

    well 000webhost are not a scam definitely, but their rules can be a little rigid at times. though thats pretty obvious, its free after all.....
