Free hosting sites that phpbot works on

Hello there.

I do not speak German so I just hope I may get some help in English.

I have just downloaded the phpBOT and got me a free domain on Unfortunately the CRON JOB on there is not working properly or I am doing something wrong..

I only play on, since it is not working ATM I decided to check the script on RELOADED version of

So I set the cron job to run index.php every 11 minutes, but it doesn't work. Is there anything else I need to set up?

The bot works perfectly when I click the link manually but the cron job sucks!

Would someone be so kind and tell me what am I missing to config or maybe I should change the domain to some other?

Looking forward to hear all the thoughts, comments and advices.
Thank you very much in advance.

Re: Free hosting sites that phpbot works on

Hi niekselis,

since I'm not using the PHP bot myself, I can't give you a cronjob page that works 100%. But there are plenty of websites offering these services. For me, Google offers these pages on the first results page:

At first sight, they all seem to be free. So perhaps one of these is working?

Most people here are not using the PHP bot because it's not easy to setup and doesn't offer many features. The vast majority uses the Web Bot (or the download version of it for Windows/Android/MacOS/Linux).

Thank you felix for your quick reply and for all the information provided.
I didn't have much time for the experiments so I started from the first position - - and it works fair enough. Setting a cron job every 10 minutes (as per your phpBot description) isn't accurate, because the collection is not always done after 600 seconds, so the optimal cron job time for a constant collection is 11 minutes if that is possible or every 5 minutes (just as I did now).
NOTE: if you want to use a - be informed that you will have to modify the launch of the bot.

I use free cron job which manages multiple sites and provides feedback and reporting.
