So,

You are having problems settings cron job on a website where SSL is enabled. Here is a quick fix.

A normal cron job... specifically wget will get you the following error.

--2015-01-30 14:50:01--  http://www.yourwebsite.com/backupscript.php
Resolving www.yourwebsite.com... 00.00.00.00, 00.00.00.00
Connecting to www.yourwebsite.com|00.00.00.00|:443... connected.

  Unable to locally verify the issuer’s authority.



Simply add ‘--no-check-certificate’ after the wget and before you URL and you are good to go.

/usr/bin/wget --no-check-certificate --max-redirect=10000 http://www.yourwebsite.com/backupscript.php
