Cron access to module


Recommended Posts



I have my custom BackOffice module which imports product data from CSV files.

Currently I manually enter the "Configuration Page" of the module and then it starts importing.


But I want to make it automated with cron job. The problem is:

How can I make a PHP file with my BackOffice module which can be accessed by crontab?


Usually BO modules can be accessed only after login.


Maybe I should do it another way... if so please tell me how :)

Works like a charm! Thanks :)


I considered this solution, but had no idea if it will include everything.

Is it good to have set cron action in module via $_GET variable like: "?cron=1"?

Only if it is set I include config and use module object
