    I am working with aMember V4Beta and am trying to set up a cron job. I can't find cron.php anywhere. Am I overlooking the file or does V4 do this differently than V3? It is not yet in the V4 instruction wiki.

    Thanks.

    That is now called "cron" not "cron.php" - just replace in URL.

    I did this but cron job is not running.
    I don't see any file in the root "/amember/" named "cron"
    Am I missing a file?

    There is no cron file, as there is no signup file , login file or member file. It is all controlled by rewrite rules. actual file processing the cron request is
    application/default/controllers/CronController.php

    What happens if you access
    http://www.yoursite.com/amember/cron
    from browser ?
    What's written to aMember CP -> Logs ?
    Have you enabled external cron at aMember Cp -> Setup -> Advanced ?

    From what I can see the cron is working normally, but you are accessing some wrong URL within your browser. Feel free to email me URL you are accessing to find out the problem.
