    It should appear in /dashboard/settings/plugins. But note that this PLUGIN DO NOTHING. This plugin is used by other plugins and applications.

    */5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php -q /home/www/htdocs/plugins/UsefulFunctions/bin/tick.php
    This need to emulate cron in Garden. Other plugins can use it.
    Actually, Morf plugin may work without this. But you will clean-up uploads/tmp manually.

    These plugns are mostly for developers, are you sure you need these?

    Thanks in advance

    @Starman I suggest you post a new discussion if you have a specific problem. This plugin is used by other plugins that need to schedule things (using cron).

    There should be no need to put this line anywhere.
