I was just starting out with my shiny new Moodle site http://nelkat.net/education/admin/and got several messages under notifications. These two seemed rather ominous:
Mystified, I looked at the Moodle documentation on Cron jobs. It took me a while to understand the directions for C Panel correctly. I did go to the Advanced section and found Cron but there is a warning that you should know Linux script well to do this and that it is best to check with your webhost. This is me, definitely checking in!!!
Thank you much!!
