Introduction

Zoombie is a cron manager emulator, when connected to any available scheduling software, runs at appropriate intervals, Zoombie acts as a time-based Task scheduler application for Joomla. Allows in an easy way to manage, schedule and run tasks alias joomla plugins automatically and periodically at specific times. The zoombie purpose is to automate system maintenance or administration task on Joomla based websites, though its general-purpose nature means that it can be used for other purpose by Third-Party extension developers.

For the zoombie application a job or a task is a zoombie plugin wich can be triggered to run at scheduled time, there are 4 way to schedule zoombie jobs:

Cron

If your webserver allows cron jobs there is a Joomla Platform application that need to be scheduled from a cron job.The zoombie command line application when running check if is time for some zoombies plugin to be triggered

CLI

If you have Command Line Interface enabled there is a Joomla Platform application that can be scheduled from a Terminal .The zoombie command line application when running check if is time for some zoombies plugin to be triggered

WebCron

to operate on hosts that do not offer a job scheduler such as cron or a shell account, the zoombie system plugin when running check if is time for some zoombies plugin to be triggered. Consider the setscronjob.com free service.

Visitor based

When a visitor views the website, the zoombie system plugin is triggerd

Zoombie is released with some ready to run task

Database backup

Automatically run db or tables backup at scheduled time

File backup

Automatically run site or folder backup at scheduled time

Site checksum

Automatically run site or folder checksum at scheduled time

AntiMalware scan

Automatically run site or folder AntiMalware script scan at scheduled time

Cache cleaning

Automatically clean expired cache at scheduled time

Finder indexer

Automatically populate Finder tables at scheduled time

Article Archive

Automatically Archive/publish/unpublish Article at scheduled time

Spam detection

Automatically run antispam check at scheduled time


Once I got this working it is a great tool for automating some of the processes for our site. As a novice in this area I could not figure out how to set up a cron task on our CPanel, so I set tasks within Zoombie for WebCron and they run right on schedule.



It took a while to set up Zoombie and its control panel due to poor documentation. If they can make the documentation or support using their own site better, I would rate this an excellent tool.
