I have a linux server where I want to install a Cron.
I was given a URL, and by visiting this URL (GET request), it will automatically rebuild a new sitemap for my website.
Basically, I want a cron to go to this URL once a day, thus my sitemap will be regenerated once a day
I'm not sure what info I need to give you regarding cron on my server...but when I go to /etc/ I can see... cron.d , cron.daily , cron.deny , cron.hourly , cron.monthy , crontab
one other thing, when i visit the GET request url myself, it takes a while before the page loads. It takes about 1-2 minutes and then a "SITEMAP COMPLETE" page appears. So the cron will have to stay at it for the entire duration until that message appears, else the sitemap will only partially regenerate.
Edit * I think I found the answer, can someone please confirm of this is correct ??? In crontab -e, I enter:
0 0 1 * * /usr/bin/wget -q -O - "http://www.domain.com/GET-REQUEST"
