Does WampServer support CRON Jobs ?
Posted by: jpmadmin17 (

I'm currently using [] to create PDF's on a Linux Server and am considering moving to WampServer on a Local PC.

A - Does WampServer support running CRON Jobs ? We run 3 jobs every 1, 4, and 7 minutes now.

B - Speed-wise, how would WampServer compare to a Linux Server on A2 Hosting (this platform seems to be 2 - 3X faster vs. GoDaddy)

Thanks !

The W in WAMPServer stands for Windows. Therefore there is no such thing as CRON. However Windows does support Task Scheduler which does what CRON does, better in some ways in fact.

As to speed comparison, we have nothing to go on. It all depends upon the server you run it on and its spec and configuration.

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.3 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache 2.4.29/2.2.31> <PHP 7.2/7.1/7.0/5.6/5.5/5.4> <MySQL 5.7.19/5.6.39/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.2.14> <phpMyAdmin4.8.1> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
