I set up two cronjobs in Plesk using their interface, but they don't seem to work.

What's wrong?

*   */1 *   *   *   curl --silent --compressed http://*****.com/assign_social_scores

*/5 *   *   *   *   curl --silent --compressed http://*****.com/fetch_resources

They should be called the first every hour, the second every five minutes

See this Parallels support link, including the info about setting it as the root user and bottom answer there. Also, it doesn't look like the cron syntax is correct, it should be something like: 0 * * * * command (hourly) and */5 * * * * command (for every five minutes). –  dan Feb 24 at 22:45
thanks, I fixed the first cron and add the full path to curl (I tried it already anyway). I can't follow the advices on the url because i don't have root access –  Bakaburg Feb 24 at 23:22
