Steps to configure PHP Cron Jobs - Godaddy

Setting up Cron Jobs at Godaddy is a bit tricky

As per Godaddy documentation, the Godaddy hosting does not support the Cron Jobs for PHP v5.4

You need to use the following path settings for different versions of PHP

Hosting typePHP versionPath
cPanel5.5/usr/bin/php
cPanel5.4/usr/local/bin/php
Plesk5.4/web/cgi-bin/php5_4
Web & Classic5.3/web/cgi-bin/php5_3
Web & Classic5.0-5.2/web/cgi-bin/php5
Web & Classic4/web/cgi-bin/php

Hence we need to choose a PHP version from the available (5.3 and 5.5)

Example (for PHP v 5.5)

/usr/bin/php “$HOME/public_html/test/mail/index.php”
