Configure scheduled tasks

Moodle(TM) LMS requires a cron task that must be run regularly. The administrator can do this from the admin panel’s “Site Administration -> Notifications” menu. To run this task in the background, create a cron job. To edit the crontab, follow these steps :

Cron tasks are already installed and enabled by default. To update the existing cron entry or add a new one, follow these steps:

  • Open and edit the /etc/cron.d/moodle cron file for Moodle.

  • Add the following line:

      */1 * * * * daemon /opt/bitnami/php/bin/php /opt/bitnami/moodle/admin/cli/cron.php > /dev/null
  • Save and exit.

Once configured, this cron entry will run the script every minute.
