If you want to call a controller/action in crontab, you simply must:

1. create a copy of index.php in your app’s webroot directory,
and rename it to cron_dispatcher.php or to any filename.

2. after this, somewhere in line 78 of index.php of your app’s webroot directory,

require CORE_PATH . ‘cake’ . DS . ‘bootstrap.php’;

put code:

if($argc == 2) {
$Dispatcher= new Dispatcher();
$Dispatcher->dispatch($argv[1]);
}

this code will get argument from php commandline having index = 1.

so, in your crontab,

* * * * php -q /var/www/html/cake/webroot/cron_dispatcher.php Controller/action
