Running PHP CLI commands for Magento on a hosted environment like Freehostia.com

If you want to run PHP CLI command for Magento extension installs on a hosted environment like Freehostia.com, and don’t have access to SSH or composer, cron jobs can be really helpful.

I had to install an extension and then run setup:upgrade, but didn’t have time to go through composer so instead, I created a cron job and put the following commands in:

/usr/local/php7.4/bin/php /home/www/bootwindows.com/bin/magento setup:upgrade

/usr/local/php7.4/bin/php /home/www/bootwindows.com/bin/magento setup:di:compile

/usr/local/php7.4/bin/php /home/www/bootwindows.com/bin/magento cache:clean


Once the cron jobs have run, you can simply delete the jobs and your magento install would have been upgraded.
