Default I created the cron job... but it says it won't run until tomorrow...

It says it won't run until 1/15/05 at 8:00 AM... can I just say run now? Heh, I didn't see anything in the install directions about telling it to run now...

Well, lemme know. I'm going to sleep soon. If this weren't 5:00 AM in the morning, perhaps I would not have trouble with the install. Maybe my brain is farting right now.

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Do I even need to worry about running it? Or did I do it wrong and that's why it says that?

Thanks again, lemme know

Yah, so are you just saying hang out and wait for it to go then? That's ok, just wanted to know. Heh, I've never used plugins for vB I'm used to template hacks etc heh.

Did I do it right though? It seems like couldn't you just specify a cron job to occur like immediately? Maybe I'm missing that point or something (If it takes too long to explain why don't worry about it, I'm just curious).

A cron job is something that will run at a specific time.

For instance, you set it up at 3 in the morning to run every day at 2 in the morining. The next time it will eun will be in 23 hours. After that - every 24 hours.
Technically, it may even be longer. If no one visits the board until 8 am, it wont be run until then.

In a nutshell, its no big deal as long as it is run periodically. All it does is refresh module caches that use the cron job.

HTHs

Wait, so is it already installed then? I thought I had to wait for it to run the cron job first. So I can do stuff with GARS already lol ? Thats why I thought it was kinda of a bummer to have to wait a few days just to do stuff.

hehe, yea - your good to go

Cron jobs are used for cleaning up data or caching data periodically. You dont need it to run in order to use the system
