Payment reminder cron job (minicomponent) - cant disable

11 months 3 days ago #47202 by Adam Yared

I noticed in the server logs that the payment reminder cron job is running, despite being disabled in the Scheduled Tasks > Payment reminder settings section of the Jomres admin page. The entry in the /var/log/message log contains:

And this process is spiking the server, would like to disable - any ideas?

In the cron jobs, the payment reminder task would still be called (those settings don't adjust the frequency of calls), but the script that receives the payment reminder call shouldn't progress any further.

Let me explain

The scripts that perform a task are 06000 scripts, like any other script that can be called through the browser, only they don't (typically) produce any output.

The scheduled task functionality calls installed tasks according to the frequency configured in the database. You may have also configured cron jobs to call those tasks individually.

The enable/disable settings you see in the scheduled tasks page are settings that the individual cron tasks can respond to, in the case of the payment schedule the setting is
p_reminder_enabled. If this is set to 0, the task (j06000cron_payment_reminder) can still be called by the schedule software or cron jobs, but the j06000cron_payment_reminder task itself will no longer perform any actions.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
