CLI script

After installing the Pro version, the CLI script is available in the cli folder of the Joomla! instance. Use the script to collect pages and to create the sitemap.xml through the command line directly on the server. With the help of crontab you can create cron jobs to automate this process.

Usage in the terminal on the server:

php path/to/joomla/root/cli/ejsCli.php x

Argument x can be: 1 - Collect URLs and create sitemap.xml, 2 - Collect pages, 3 - Create sitemap.xml. The default value is 1 if no argument is provided!

Example for a crontab entry to collect all URLs and update the sitemap.xml daily at midnight. Open with the cron utility with crontab -e and enter the code with the correct path of your Joomla! installation. Do not forget to restart this service after you've saved the file:

0 0 * * * php path/to/joomla/root/cli/ejsCli.php 1
