Run Builds Using Cron

Running builds using cron is a quick and simple method of getting up and running with PHPCI. It also removes the need for PHPCI to be running all the time.

If you want a little more control over how PHPCI runs, you may want to set up the PHPCI daemon instead.

Setting up the Cron Job

You’ll want to set up PHPCI to run as a regular cronjob, so run crontab -e and enter the following:

* * * * * /usr/bin/php /path/to/phpci/console phpci:run-builds

Note: Make sure you change the /path/to/phpci to the directory in which you installed PHPCI, and update the PHP path if necessary.
