moving cron php file
« on: March 24, 2017, 08:36:37 AM »
hi,
for this app, is there any security value to moving the cron file outside of the public_html directory? if so, are there directions on what changes in code would need to be made to make the move?
thanks

I really can't see there being much in the way of security benefits to moving the crons outside of the  public_html directory.

It would also require a lot of code changes to the script, and for those running their crons from 3rd party cron services wouldn't be able to connect to the cron tasks.
