Creating Cronjob

This application is designed to run as a system service. However, it can run as a cronjob. See the Creating System Service page for details.

Create a cronjob that runs on reboot. On your FPP, open a SSH session. Once logged in, enter

crontab -e

When the text editor opens, add the following to the bottom of the file. Change the directory to match where you extracted the FP Monitor.

@reboot /home/fpp/fpmonitor/falconpitwitter > /home/fpp/media/logs/falconpitwitter.log 2>&1

Then save and exit the text editor.
