Step 1 : Install Laravel App


In First step, We need to get fresh laravel version application using bellow command. So Let's open terminal and run bellow command.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2 : Create New Command

In this step, we need to create our custom command. custom command will execute with task scheduling scron job. So let's run bellow command to create new custom command:

php artisan make:command TestCron --command=test:cron

Successfully run above command then make some changes on command file:

app/Console/Commands/TestCron.php

<?php

namespace App\Console\Commands;

use Illuminate\Console\Command;

class TestCron extends Command

{

/**

* The name and signature of the console command.

*

* @var string

*/

protected $signature = 'test:cron';

/**

* The console command description.

*

* @var string

*/

protected $description = 'Command description';

/**

* Create a new command instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function __construct()

{

parent::__construct();

}

/**

* Execute the console command.

*

* @return int

*/

public function handle()

{

\Log::info("Cron is working fine!");

/*

Write your database logic we bellow:

User::create(['name'=>'test', 'email' => 'test@test.com']);

*/

}

}

Step 3 : Register as Task Scheduler

In this step, we need to define our commands on Kernel.php file with time when you want to run your command like as bellow functions:

->everyMinute(); Run the task every minute
->everyFiveMinutes(); Run the task every five minutes
->everyTenMinutes(); Run the task every ten minutes
->everyFifteenMinutes(); Run the task every fifteen minutes
->everyThirtyMinutes(); Run the task every thirty minutes
->hourly(); Run the task every hour
->hourlyAt(17); Run the task every hour at 17 mins past the hour
->daily(); Run the task every day at midnight
->dailyAt(’13:00?); Run the task every day at 13:00
->twiceDaily(1, 13); Run the task daily at 1:00 & 13:00
->weekly(); Run the task every week
->weeklyOn(1, ‘8:00’); Run the task every week on Tuesday at 8:00
->monthly(); Run the task every month
->monthlyOn(4, ’15:00?); Run the task every month on the 4th at 15:00
->quarterly(); Run the task every quarter
->yearly(); Run the task every year
->timezone(‘America/New_York’); Set the timezone

app/Console/Kernel.php

>?php

namespace App\Console;

use Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Console\Kernel as ConsoleKernel;

class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel

{

/**

* The Artisan commands provided by your application.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $commands = [

Commands\TestCron::class,

];

/**

* Define the application's command schedule.

*

* @param \Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule $schedule

* @return void

*/

protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)

{

$schedule->command('test:cron')

->everyMinute();

}

/**

* Register the commands for the application.

*

* @return void

*/

protected function commands()

{

$this->load(__DIR__.'/Commands');

require base_path('routes/console.php');

}

}

Step 3 : Register as Task Scheduler

now we are ready to run our cron, so you can manually check using following command of your cron. so let's run bellow command:

php artisan schedule:run

After run above command, you can check log file where we already print some text. so open you your log file it looks like as bellow:

storage/logs/laravel.php

[2019-04-24 03:46:42] local.INFO: Cron is working fine!

[2019-04-24 03:46:52] local.INFO: Cron is working fine!

[2019-04-24 03:46:55] local.INFO: Cron is working fine!

At last you can manage this command on scheduling task, you have to add a single entry to your server’s crontab file:

* * * * * php /path/to/artisan schedule:run 1>> /dev/null 2>&1

OR

* * * * * cd /path-to-your-project && php artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

It will help you....
