"...CVS:bin/mailnotify script is not designed to run in dual mode, e.g. you can run it only as a shell script, not as a cgi script. You get the error [premature end of script headers] because the script does not return a correct httpd header. Therefore this sounds more like a FeatureEnhancementRequest then a bug. The implementation would be easy, basically copy the concept of the statistics script." -- PTh, MailNotifyWithoutCron

I am now requesting this easy implementation. thanks in advance! smile

Further, Peter says:

You could create a simple cgi wrapper that calls mailnotify. Then you can call the wrapper from a scheduled task on any server that has Internet access.

  1. Why would we want installations to create their own wrapper scripts? Surely then everyone would end up with their own version?
  2. If the MailnotifyCgiScript is by design not a CGI script then this suggests there is a call to not have it in the directory that contains otherwise only CGI scripts. If it should have then let's queue it as a distinct feature enhancement request, and queue it for Edinburgh

MailerContrib, which is destined to be a replacement for mailnotify, already supports dual mode running. But I agree with Martin - it's for Edinburgh.

Thanks for the pointer - I was about to reimplement it...

Once it is a cgi script, there is at least one site which lets you use their cron server for free: http://www.cron24.de/en/ (thanks to TravisBarker on TWikiIRC for finding it!)

-- MattWilkie - 21 May 2004; 09,19 Jun 2004

cron24 seems to be offline, you can try http://www.cronjobs.org or http://www.webcron.org instead.
