First of all create task using the below command:
php symfony generate:task [your task]
php symfony generate:task notificationFailed
After executing above command you will see that following file has been created.
Creating "/var/www/archive/ipay4me_zen/lib/task /notificationFailedTask.class.php" task file
change the following variable in above created file:
$this->namespace = 'project';
$this->name = '[name-for-your-task]';
$this->briefDescription = '[some short explanation of what your task does]';
You will see another method called execute() given below:
protected function execute($arguments = array(), $options = array())
// initialize the database connection
$databaseManager = new sfDatabaseManager($this->configuration);
$connection = $databaseManager->getDatabase($options['connection'] ? $options['connection'] : null)->getConnection();
// add your code here
echo "I just did nothing at all, but at least I did it successfully!\n\n";
Let’s give it a test run. Open your command line and enter
php symfony project:[your task]
if everything is fine then you will see "I just did nothing at all, but at least I did it successfully!" otherwise correct error and run again.
If you see the expected output you’re then ready to go to the next step.
Note: if you want to access your app.yml variable here then you have to write following line:
* * * * * cd [YOUR SF APP DIR] && /usr/bin/symfony project:[YOUR TASK] >>[YOUR SF APP DIR]/log/crontab.log
* * * * * cd /var/www/archive/ipay4me_new && /usr/bin/php symfony project:notificationFailed >>/var/www/archive/ipay4me_new/log/crontab.log
