    I went ahead and did everything in the instructions, but was unable to get the CRON to run on my cPanel server. I checked in with support and here’s what they said on the subject:

    `You can set the cron as below.
    */5 * * * * wget -q >> /dev/null
    With -O option you need to give the argument (output file name)as below.

    In fact, my server doesn’t run the CRON with anything other than “wget http://domain…ream/import.php, which results in the following:

    `–2011-02-08 10:20:01–
    Resolving… bla.bla.bla.bla Connecting to|bla.bla.bla.bla|:80… connected.
    HTTP request sent, awaiting response… 200 OK
    Length: 0 [text language="/html"][/text]
    Saving to: `import.php.243′
    0K 0.00 =0s
    2011-02-08 10:20:01 (0.00 B/s) – `import.php.243′ saved [0/0]`

    Any idea what I should do to get this working?
    Thanx for any help anyone can provide.
