Hi Max,


I have just installed a trial of OpenCart Lightning on a store running OC 1.5.2.


I have configured the CRON script to run but I am finding that it never ends - it just seems to hang.


I am on Windows Server 2012 R2, and have tried running the script both from the command line and as a scheduled task with the same result.


Is there a known issue or is this something you are aware of? Do I really need to run the CRON job or will the tasks it carries out be carried out anyway if I don't run it?


If you need FTP access or anything else just let me know.

That is OK, CRON job is designed to hang in idle state, until the need to pregenerate arizes - due to cache expire or visitor opening some page triggers next pages pregeneration.

This CRON job is designed to restart itseft (the previos copy dies when new one is started).

Lot of hosters has some limits for PHP script working, thats why 15 mins is optimal.


Without CRON job pages pregeneration will be carried out by AJAX-requests from client's browsers, that is not so effective.
