Configure the Poormanscron module

April 29, 2010 by Steve

There are a lot of housekeeping tasks that Drupal does in the background to keep the site running nicely. Modules can hook into a cron system so that things get run regularly. But running the cron job requires the proper level of access at your webhost. Poormanscron lets you trigger the cron job from people using your website; the next page load after the timer runs out triggers the cron job in the background.
