Trouble setting up my cron jobs.


I'm using Elgg for the first time and I am having some trouble getting my cron jobs automated.

I am using HostPapa as my service provider, I'm using their cpanel cron job interface to create the jobs and using wget to trigger the url.

After consulting the Elgg documentation I used the command "/usr/bin/wget --spider -d"

This command is returning a "503 service unavailable" error. I have contacted HostPapa Support several times but they have trouble getting past the fact that the directory structure is not present in my websites folder. It doesn't help that I don't know too much about wget either.

So what should I do? Are there wget commands that might help or do I need a better explanation for the HostPapa Support staff.

Any help full suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
