cron “No input file specified” solved 11


For quite a while unknown to me my script was not automatically running via the cron job I setup.  After entering my email address in cpanel’s standard cron interface, the email I received said:

Status: 404 Not Found
X-Powered-By: PHP/5.2.5
Content-type: text/html

No input file specified.

A few minutes of searching the net uncovered my mistake. I had a url variable on the command, which cause it not to work. Instead of
php /home/mysite/public_html/filename.php?method=automated
use
php /home/mysite/public_html/filename.php method=automated .

Exclude the question mark in the url variable and that made it work.
