 Before setting up your cron job make sure that your host allows crons to be run every 5 minutes, some shared hosting plans do not allow crons to be run under 10 or even 15 minutes. GoDaddy and HostGator are a couple of examples, they only allow cron jobs under 15 minutes on their VPS and Dedicated server plans. Many hosts aren't up-front as to how frequently you can run cron jobs, so you may need to do some digging in their site terms or forums, or ask them directly. Most will allow you to make cron settings of 5 minutes in cPanel, but that doesn'​t necessarily mean it's going to actually work.\\ Before setting up your cron job make sure that your host allows crons to be run every 5 minutes, some shared hosting plans do not allow crons to be run under 10 or even 15 minutes.
