Re: WinSCP cronjob

@emma: What do you want to achieve? My post above means, that if you want to schedule WinSCP to do something regularly, you should use Windows Scheduler. There's no "cronjob" in Windows.

Re: WinSCP cronjob

There's nothing like "WinSCP server". If you mean the SFTP/FTP/whatever server that you connect to with WinSCP, then you are on a wrong track here.
That's a question about your server's system. We do not know what that is. And it's not a WinSCP question anyway. If it is some common Linux system, then indeed, you use the "cron". If you have problems, please ask at a appropriate site, like https://superuser.com/.

Re: How to run a php file in winscp?

@ALIRAZA: You probably need to ssh to the server and execute the script from the terminal. You can do that from WinSCP:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_console
Though using a dedicated SSH terminal client is usually better.
I'm sure the Moodle installation instructions cover that.
If you need more details, please contact Moodle support. You will hardly get more specific advice here.
