I have installed Oxwall and keep getting an error saying that I have not set the cron job. My email errors say there is a permission problem with wget.

How do I amend these permissions?

Many thanks,

Hello Shaunb,

Thank you for your question. The wget command is disabled on shared servers, you can use Curl however.

For example:
curl -A "UserAgentString"

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
