cron jobs

Post by linedadelas »

Just out of curiosity, why do we have our current system as opposed to the more simple use of actual crime jobs?

I fitted my board with crime jobs after a while of messing with our alternative, and it's much easier.
I'm aware of the break in API and of server compatibility, but it seems still like such a good option even with said errors.

Because of shared hosting. Most don't give their users access via CPanel or otherwise to the system cron.
