This revision contains updates to allow it to work in Mautic 2.6.x

This script can be used in shared web hostings which doesn't allow to execute CLI commands to run Mautic cron and maintenance tasks.

How to make it work

  1. Create a PHP file in the root folder of Mautic.
  2. Copy and paste the code of the script above.
  3. Change ILoveMautic in that script to some secret phrase so only you'll be able to run the commands.
  4. Run a command by accessing this URL with your browser http://[yourmautic.com]/commands.php?ILoveMauticReallyIDo.
    Change [yourmautic.com] to your domain or wherever your Mautic runs and ILoveMautic to your secret phrase from step 3.

The output from the script will be sent to the browser so you can see the results just as if you ran this commany in the Mautic CLI.

How to use it

When you execute the URL from step 4, you should get the list of available commands with URL addresses. You can try to click on those to run the command manually or right click and copy the link address and insert those links to a cron UI provided by your web hosting company.

Thanks a lot! I was having no luck with native cron jobs and Cronfig. But this script finally did the trick for me.

So now can this be set to run on a server automatically (avoid the whole cron job thing)? Let's say one wanted to execute the 'mautic:emails:send' job every 1 minute. Can you please show how this would be done? Maybe a start and stop button on the html page? This would be awesome!!

So to be clear, make this server functionality using a loop maybe and sleep command rather than having to ping the job from a url. I don't know php or I would attempt this myself. This would solve a huge problem for shared hosting installs. Cronfig doesn't work nor is it sufficient.

Hi Guys

I'm pretty new to Mautic, and have no coding skills (yet lol) I'm an SAP expert, but starting with those digital tools like this marketing automation tool that looks pretty efficient, so let me get time to get use with it :-)
Can you guys let me know how I can use this latest update concretely? I follow the steps with url as I have put the php file in our servers in mautic root directory, but when I insert in chrome navigator xxx.com/commands.php?secretphrase, nothing happens at all, I must have missed something as nothing occurs and only website is poping up
I've downloaded the latest zip file to proceed, but I'm a bit lost, so if you guys can show me the exact steps of what I should exactly do that would help
I could download the plugin available in this procedure here below
https://cronfig.io/

But we have only a max of 3 Crons runing in batch job, so if I could make a run of more to get more efficient, this script seems to work from the latest comments so if you can let me know how to proceed as pure beginner that would be great, many thanks in advance for your help

Hi Guys

I tested it on my shared host, I put it in the root file of my website, called the script in URL and nothing happens, can you guys let me know what's the issue or if I missed something?

I've put it this way in the url: http://xxx.com/cronjobfile.php

it displays the wordpress initial website page, nothing else

any thought?

ok, sorry, forgot the secret phrase, and renamed correctly the file, so I did get the web page with all the links, when I click in one link, for example, leads update I get: "Executing console mautic:leadlists:update"
any info of where should we see the evolution or logs of those script to know that they went well?

ok, I've just opened a free account to test them on easycron, segment, campaign are failing, those are the only ones I've tested, but there is an issue, so, if you guys have some tips, feel free to share

Hello
I found the mistake, it works now on easycron, jobs succeed

when in a post above it said: "When you execute the URL form 4., you should get the list of available commands with URL addresses. You can try to click on those to run the command manually or insert those URL addresses to a cron UI provided by your web hosting company"

Actually, there is a clarification to be done: The links for crons shown after they are generated from initial link with secret phrase, they can be copied, but we should remove the secret phrase that is still in the url link, then, it works, at least it worked this way for me

@ChgoChad are we supposed to click mautic:install:data to upgrade from version 2.6 to 2.7? Please note I don't have much data in 2.6 cause I set it up just a few days ago. Do I need to click on links to update campaigns, segments and all?

It's ok I found the answer...If upgrading from 2.6.0 or 2.6.1:
Since this does not include any schema changes, the update process built into Mautic's front-end will suffice in updating. Simply log out, back in, and you should see the upgrade notification

@ChgoChad I will try your new version, hope it works with 2.8.2 version as well ;-)

so far, I was using this one below, but now on cron-jobs.org, it seems that it is not that stable, and generate strange behaviours of mautic, it only work when commands are made manually. Cache clear seems to to be wrong now on that script:

'; echo '

Specify what task to run. You can run these:'; echo '

    '; foreach ($allowedTasks as $task) { $href = $link . '&task=' . urlencode($task); echo '
  • ' . $task . '
  • '; } echo '

Read more'; echo '
Please, backup your database before executing the doctrine commands!

'; die; } $task = urldecode($_GET['task']); if (!in_array($task, $allowedTasks)) { echo 'Task ' . $task . ' is not allowed.'; die; } $fullCommand = explode(' ', $task); $command = $fullCommand[0]; $argsCount = count($fullCommand) - 1; $args = array('console', $command); if ($argsCount) { for ($i = 1; $i <= $argsCount; $i++) { $args[] = $fullCommand[$i]; } } echo ''; echo '

'; } catch (\Exception $exception) { echo $exception->getMessage(); }

Hi,

I get some errors when running these

"Executing console mautic:campaigns:rebuild

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home3/[accountname]/[mauticurl].com/m/vendor/doctrine/dbal/lib/Doctrine/DBAL/Driver/PDOConnection.php on line 104

Also cahe:clear similar errror,

Executing console cache:clear

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home3/[accountname]/[mauticurl].com/m/vendor/symfony/translation/MessageCatalogue.php on line 136

but "cache:clear -- no warmup" works

Any ideas?

The following also seem to run without generating any errors.
campaigns:trigger
segments:update

Hi guys! I've just installed and tested here.... Working fine!
Installed in a shared Cpanel hosting.
Some tips:

  1. When you execute the script and it gives the commands list, after clicking on any command, you´ll get a urlencoded formatted link.
  2. Remember to change the line 3 ILoveMautic GET password!

@ChgoChad, do You know how to execute webhooks? (mautic:webhooks:process)
I've tryed some changes on your script to execute it but it returns on cronjob email log:

Webhook Bundle is in immediate process mode. To use the command function change to command mode.
