    I need a crontab enabled for Interspire Email Marketer on two sites.

    It shouldn't take long, probably 10 minutes for someone who knows what they're doing with cron jobs.

    I tried creating the cron job within cPanel but Interspire still says "You have enabled cron support, but the system has not yet detected a cron job running."

    I copied and pasted the cron job command directly from Interspire into the crontab section of cPanel, but nothing (obviously).

    Make me an offer for this quick job and it's yours, I'll pay you via PayPal...

    In CPanel click Cron Jobs. Standard. Then type in the direct URL to the cron file and choose how often you would like it to run, takes 2 minutes :)

    I'm having the same Cron Job issue with Interspire and Godaddy and can't seem to get anything to work. I've read the Interspire manual and help tabs, gone through tons of Google and Forum searches, tried different Cron command lines, and still have yet to see it work.

    I called Godaddy, they said the Cron job is firing off the server but the command is inaccurate.

    Any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated!

    Nevermind, I finally got it! I'll tell how just in case some poor sap has the same problem I did one day:

    Everything is very simple and to the book, all the way up to the point of inputting the correct Cron Command in CPanel. I tried a billion different input methods, none worked.

    What did work? I am using GoDaddy, not sure if this is universal: Instead of copy/pasting or manually inputting, I used the Browse button for the Cron Command and traced down the actual cron.php file in the hosting file, selected it, and saved. The Cron job almost immediately fired up and started running!
