best place for cron.php?

I am implementing cron jobs as per

What is the best place to put cron.php that it is only accessible for the console application and not for the whole world.



In short: Outside the webroot :P

why not calling yiic yourcommand via cronjob?

@mbi I will try this. I tried the wiki cause it is written by one of the staff guys samdark hence thought it’s best practice approach. What is the difference between using cron.php and calling yiic yourcommand?



I dont know the difference, but all you can call via shell, you can call via cron as well

Put in protected/console dir and call using yiic

Yep I will give it a try. It falls short on my list. I just don’t get it why we can use cron.php when it is available through the browser
