Error messages explanation

When set cron job with your URL, you may see one of these messages:

- No need to set cron job with home page URL.

- This domain name is restricted.

Mentioned in Set cron job with a URL.

- This URL is restricted.

Your URL contains prohibited words. Read my Term of Service.

-Invalid URL. URL must start with http://, length from 12 to 200 characters.

The shortest URL, I think, will like http://a.bc/ (one character domain name with national extension), whose  length is only 12 characters. Normal URL length will be from 50 to 200 characters.

- This URL is unreachable.

This means SetCronJob cannot connect to your server (the connection time out is 2 seconds). You should have a look at your URL and make sure there's no http://http:// at begining of your URL, or some typos in domain name.

- This URL returns "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found"...

Your server don't found the page you try to set cron job. You may check typos in URL, or go directly to that URL by browser to see whether it works.

- This URL returns "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"...

- This URL returns "HTTP/1.1 302 Found"...

The two error messages above mean that your URL redirects to somewhere. You can fix that by enter directly your URL into browser, and when everything is loaded, copy the URL displayed on address bar, then set cron job with that URL.

- This URL returns "HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden"...

Make sure your directory has index file, or your server / script allows SetCronJob to make request. The user agent of SetCronJob is SetCronJob/1.0 (+, and IP is

- This URL returns "HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized"...

This URL require logging in. Make sure you entered correct username:password@ before domain name.

- Nothing else :D
