I have a php script that I want to run periodically.
The script works and can be accessed

I set up cron to run every 3 minutes(just for test) with the following link
php -q /home/brandi14/public_html/scripts/trend.php
But it doesn't work

Hello brandi14,

I regret to hear that Cron is Not Working, but thank you for posting your question.

When setting up a cron job, please ensure it is set up as per the instructions for the following article:
How to run a cron job.

I checked the cron logs and can see the cron ran successfully yesterday from 7:53am to 8:22am. I also see that it was called again at 12:29am this morning. It is definitely running according the cron logs.

Best Regards,
Scott M
