Setting up a CRON task to simulate a visit to a page on my site

I've tried a few methods with no success so far. The support for the plug-in that I'm trying to run suggests wget, curl or lynx commands on the cron. I have tried all of these methods and can't seem to get them to work. Is there a particular command option specific to your hosting services that I might be missing?

currently my cron is set up as:

curl http://ehub29.webhostinghub.com/~jamesm17/index.php?ACT=*&id=*

(with * replaced with my references)

I've tested the URL and it works fine every time, so no problems there.

Hello JMattison,

There is no special commands to run with our server. I have included our Cron tutorial below to help you. Match that with your command line and it should work fine.
