    cron tasks and database not defined in SS 2.4 Link to this post

    Hi there,

    I'm stuck on a problem with schedulded tasks. I have read this
    http://api.silverstripe.org/2.4/class-ScheduledTask.html
    and this
    http://deadlytechnology.com/silverstripe/scheduled-tasks/
    and everything seems to be working quite well on my local host but on the live server, the database connection is not initialized so when I call any dataobject, it fails.

    I can see that SS_DATABASE_USERNAME and SS_DATABASE_PASSWORD are configured correctly from my __ss_environment.php file, but that don't seem to be enough. Is the _config.php executed when running silverstripe from the command line?
    if not, how can I specify my database name and initialize my connection without duplicating my configuration that is already in _config.php

    If someone has a bright idea, it would be great!
