Cron configuration


It is very important that rake tasks are NOT run by root. It will cause failure due to insufficient permissions.

Here is an example of a complete setting. Let's say you are running Easy Redmine under user easy. you will need to use relevant paths. The commands are:
View active crons crontab -u easy -l
Editing crontab -u easy -e
Apply changes sudo service cron reload

Example for running cron every 5 minutes:
*/5 * * * *             /home/easy/scripts/ &> /dev/null

#!/bin/bash -l


echo "$(date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') start rake" >> ${LOG_FILE}
cd /home/easy/current && bundle exec rake easyproject:scheduler:run_tasks RAILS_ENV=production >> ${LOG_FILE}
echo "$(date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') end rake" >> ${LOG_FILE}

/home/easy/scripts/ has to be an executable:
sudo chmod +x /home/easy/scripts/

Don't hesitate to search the internet for a more precise manual to set up cron on your server. It is not an exclusively Easy Redmine required function.
