Introduction to Data Feed Synchronization
SOLDPress schedules data feed synchronization to occur nightly at 12:00 am. Our process chunks data from the CREA DDF Feed in by 100 items into an array. Once the data is all retrieved(extract) then we begin the the transform and load process.
SOLDPress default setting uses WP-CRON to automate and schedule DDF™ data feed synchronization. Using the WP-CRON method a cron job is triggered when somebody visits your website for the first time. WP-CRON is a psudo cron service that simulates normal cron-jobs. .
Under the WP-CRON option SOLDPress schedules data feed synchronization to occur nightly at 12:00 am. If nobody has visited your website at 12:00 am the scheduled job will not be executed.
SOLDPress also allows you to option to use UNIX and SOLDPress Cron Service.
