Disable "Periodic Report" e-mails.

Since my update to 7.3, I have begun receiving these with any action that Dolphin fires out an e-mail to me for.  I really don't need to be notified for every little e-mail or action that's performed on my site.

What's the best way to disable the periodic report e-mail?

Thanks,

Bill

Please, please, does anyone have a solution for this? We really would like to have this function disabled, as it is something we can check directly via CPanel if we need to...

Hoping for a simple solution :))

This should be what you're looking for. You may have to edit it a bit, since it apparently blocks more than just the periodic reports from running.

Gotcha, yeah I browsed that thread earlier, but missed the specific lines as noted to comment out.

 

Thanks!

Just add this to the end of your cron command

> /dev/null 2>&1

for example

/usr/bin/php -q /home/mysite/public_html/periodic/cron.php >/dev/null 2>&1

and you will not get the resulting output sent to you.

 Will this just stop periodic reports or does it stop other messages like those submitted by members via the contact from? Does it work in dolphin 7.1.3?

Just add this to the end of your cron command

> /dev/null 2>&1

for example

/usr/bin/php -q /home/mysite/public_html/periodic/cron.php >/dev/null 2>&1

and you will not get the resulting output sent to you.

It tells the cron to dump its output, and not send an email.  So the periodic report still runs, but you won't be notified about it (or anything else, for that matter).

It didn't seem to work for me in 7.1.3

I revisited this post because I'm getting hundreds of periodic reports emailed to me each day. I checked my cron and it does have   >/dev/null 2>&1   added to the end of the cron command.


Any other ideas or tips?


Should I comment out the following code per this post: https://www.boonex.com/forums/topic/Disable-Periodic-Reports-or-Else-says-the-ISP.htm#104339


inc/classes/BxDolCronNotifies.php

//            sendMail($site['email'], $site['title'] . ": Periodic Report", $sResult);

I edited the BxDolCronNotifies.php  and it stopped the hundreds of periodic reports spamming me.

Interestingly I still received the 'one per day' main periodic report which is a good thing.

 

inc/classes/BxDolCronNotifies.php

//            sendMail($site['email'], $site['title'] . ": Periodic Report", $sResult);
