Account Scanner

Introduction

AutoRank Pro includes an account scanner which you can run at any time to check up on the member sites in your database. You can have multiple configurations of the account scanner, and it can be started through the control panel or by using cron.

Configuration

Before you use the account scanner, you will need to configure it through the control panel. Locate and click on the Scan Accounts link in the Member Accounts section of the control panel menu. AutoRank Pro will load a page where you can configure how you want the account scanner to run. Once you have everything set how you want it, press the Save button. To load or delete a previously existing configuration, select it from the drop down list and press the appropriate button.

Starting Through Control Panel

To start the account scanner through the control panel, locate and click on the Scan Accounts link in the Member Accounts section of the control panel menu. At the bottom of the page you will see the Run Account Scanner box. Simply select the configuration that you want to run from the drop down menu, and press the Start button. A window will pop-up indicating that the account scanner has been started.

You may start multiple configurations at once, but if you start the same configuration of the account scanner that is already running, the old one will be stopped and the new one will start from the beginning.

Checking Status

To check the status of the account scanner, locate and click on the Scan Accounts link in the Member Accounts section of the control panel menu. At the bottom of the page you will see the Run Account Scanner box. Simply select the configuration who's status you are interested in from the drop down menu, and press the Check Status button. A window will pop-up with information on where the account scanner is in it's progress.

Starting Through Cron

Please see the Cron section of the manual.
