    I checked the log, the interval is every 2 days, is this the time the sitemap be re-generate and submit to search engines? Is it possible to adjust it to every 6 or 12 hours?

    @Chris D - or anyone


    What does "Any" mean on this cron entry page? Is that the same as "All" ?

    It gives you the option:

    - Any
    - Mon
    - Tue
    - Wed
    - Thu
    - Fri
    - Sat
    - Sun

    So do you highlight all the "days" if you want it to run every day, or do you just select "Any" ?

    Technically Any is grammatically wrong if its supposed to be equivilent to all. Any means it could run maybe Monday one week and maybe Friday another week.


    My goal: I would like it to update the XML file hourly. Which options do I select to accomplish that?

    See attached image - does this set it to:

    1) Every day of the week
    2) Every hour of the day
    3) On the 1st minute of every hour?

    Its really confusing........................

    @Chris D - Sorry to clarify, will those settings accomplish the above-stated goal?

    'Any' day of the week 'any' hour of the day but EVERY 1 minute .... is it updating once an hour or once a minute?

    Yes, that will do it once an hour. The first minute of every hour as requested.
