Nextcloud - Cron Setup

This is really just a note for anyone trying to solve this issue in the future, as I was working through setting up Nextcloud cron.php via HestiaCP - Cron configuration tab, I assumed I had to STATE the “php” entry, and I was incorrect.

Adding this cron job under the HestiaCP user in question works perfectly.

Code that Nextcloud recommends:
php -f /var/www/nextcloud/cron.php

Code that HestiaCP likes:
-f ~/web/(your domain name)/public_html/cron.php

Enjoy, and thanks to all the great work by these devs!

/usr/bin/php -f /home/user/web/(your domain name)/public_html/cron.php should also work fine
