    I apologise if this has been asked before. I gave up after searching for 30 minutes,
    The document root for my site is: /var/www/clients/client1/web1
    I'm using Boonex Dolphin/Cheetah and they recommend the following cron job:
    [email protected]
    * * * * * cd /var/www/my website.com/web/periodic; /usr/bin/php -q cron.php

    ISPConfig suggests the following example:
    /var/www/clients/clientX/webY/myscript.sh or http://www.mydomain.com/path/script.php
    How do I convert the Dolphin recommendation to the ISPConfig suggestion?
    Can I use:
    (1) /var/www/clients/client1/web1/periodic; /usr/bin/php -q cron.php
    or
    2. http://www.mywebsite.com/periodic; /usr/bin/php -q cron.php
    Or do I have everything back to front?
    Finally, where do I enter M[email protected] ?
    Is this correct?
    [email protected]; (plus 1 or 2 above?)

    I've tried all combinations, but I'm not getting any mail.
    Thanks in advance.
