Automated Cron Job

Post by RWAP » Sat Jan 09, 2010 4:46 pm

We have created a sys_maintain.php file which we use to fire off the Cron job on a regular basis - if anyone else needs this, give us a shout. At the moment, we can only see a real need for use with our own modules, such as keeping the sitemap and google base files up to date.

However, potentially one improvement for the Cron Job would be to delete inactive auctions, say 90 days after the auction finishes? What do people think? The issue there is if an item has not been paid for....

With the Item Payments module, there is now a safeguard, so this could be implemented.

Suggestion would be to delete closed auctions which have been marked as PAID and SHIPPED by the Seller, or possibly we wait until both the seller and the buyer have deleted the items from their list of Sold Items / Auctions You Have Won

Which do people think would be the best way?
