Controller action as a cron job phalcon

I need to run a cron job to do a sql query and save the data in the database every 24 hours.

I have a controller called GetproductsController.php and the method I have to execute is indexAction()

I've tried to do it this way:

59 23 * * * cd /var/www/html/proyecto/getproductscontroller.php index

But I don´t know how to do it, If anyone knows how I can do it, I would appreciate it.

Everything is explained here https://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/reference/cli.html

And also you will need php in front of file in your cron line

yes do it with cli or use curl on your crontab.

59 23 * * * curl --silent http://domain.com/products

Thanks for your answers! That´s good, and how can I add another controller I mean I have this in MainTask.php:

class MainTask extends Task{

public function mainAction(){
    echo "This is the default task and the default action" . PHP_EOL;
}

public function getProductivityAction(){

  $production   = array();
  $year         = date('Y');
  $sqlSowing =" SELECT CONCAT(YEAR(date),' ') AS year
  FROM sw_sowing
  WHERE type = 'SW'
  AND status = 100
  AND id_tenant = :id_tenant
  GROUP BY YEAR(date)
  ORDER BY date";
  $resultYear = $this->db->fetchAll($sqlSowing, Phalcon\Db::FETCH_ASSOC, array(
  ':id_tenant' => $this->getIdTenant()
));

} }

but the query it doesn´t work because I need another controller call ControllerBase.php, how can I add another extends in the class?

You can either set up tasks (see my StackOverflow answer on how to do that - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41874177/phalcon-cli-task-name/41875667#41875667) and call it via php -f /path/to/cli.php <<TaskName>> <<ActionName>> OR use wget/curl to rbasically immitate the same request a browser would make.

The cron command would be either;

# Make sure the /path/to/cli.php is executable
# chmod +x /path/to/cli.php
59 0 * * * php -f /path/to/cli.php <<TaskName>> <<ActionName>> >/dev/null 2>&1

OR

59 0 * * * wget -q http://domain.com/products >/dev/null 2>&1

You can then run either the php -f or wget manually to see if everything is fine. Let me know how well this helps you.

Thanks for your answer I am going to prove it !

Just a suggestion to always show the relevant parts from links, the link is gone so now "nothing is explained". ;-)
