Hello, I've been reading about Cron & Lazy Cron for days, but since my knowledge of programming is fairly limited, I couldn't get a single task done, so I'm here again to seek some help, probably learn a thing or two. Firstly, Cron is task scheduler run by the server, right? And lazy cron is run by ProcessWire which runs only when page is loaded?? If lazy cron runs only when pages are loaded, how will it run periodically? My requirement is, on every first minute of a day, a specific page(which will contain some code to perform several tasks) should run. Since right now, the code doesn't need any specific time to run, I just run the page manually every morning. But there will be a time when it'll need to run at very specific time. I wish to know if this requirement can be fulfilled by Lazy Cron or will I also need to use cron? TL;DR I wish to know what's the difference between Lazy Cron & CRON? And when to use which? Also, I need to run a PW page specifically a minute after every midnight. Will it possible only with Lazy Cron or will I have to use Cron as well? For running URL instead of file in CRON, I'm looking at this solution by Horst.
