I want to create a cronjob that every X time goes to open a webpage.
This webpage is password protected by .htaccess (user=admin, passwor=pass). The instruction I give is the following:
wget --user=admin --password='pass' http://www.mywebsite.com/test.php
But cron gives me the following error:
--2012-05-02 10:14:01-- http://www.mywebsite.com/test.php Resolving www.mywebsite.com... IP Connecting to www.mywebsite.com|IP|:80... connected. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 401 Authorization Required Reusing existing connection to www.mywebsite.com:80. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden 2012-05-02 10:14:01 ERROR 403: Forbidden.
I have also tried doing:
but with similar errors. How can I solve? Thank you in advance for your help.
wget --user admin --password pass http://www.mywebsite.com/test.php
Opens every minutes a website with a htaccess password
*/1 * * * * wget -O /dev/null --user admin --password pass "http://www.mywebsite.com/test.php" > /dev/null 2>&1
Add auth parameter to url. This works for me when call url directly.
I don't know how much secure it is...
