    Does anyone have any experience setting up the cron jobs in hostgator? I cannot figure out which command to use as well as what path to use it in as my amember is located in the root directory (like this: /sitename/membership) and its on a subdomain as membership.sitename.com

    Any help would really be appreciated!!!

    Have you tried commands listed here:

    Also, if you couldn't find exact way, feel free to setup cron job from your amember.com account account.
    You would need to specify your cron script url and that's all.

    I have this working on Hostgator: php /home/ACCOUNTNAME/public_html/members/cron.php

    Where ACCOUNTNAME is your account, and members is the folder in which Amember is installed.

    Hope that helps.

    I am running PHP 5.3. This is the command line I successfully used with Hostgator:

    PHP:
    /usr/local/bin/php /home1/yourusername/public_html/aMember/cron.php http://yourwebsite.com/amember/cron.php
