Frederic Wenzel commented on MNT-1472:
--------------------------------------

How about we have a background process running (every minute, which is as short as it gets for cronjobs, or something similar), and this background process does in fact not run the backend, but just checks the "kickit queue"?

The regularly scheduled runs would just have to be put on that queue every 15 minutes or so.

Problem: The job would only run once a minute, which means "kick it" would not quite be "immediate" propagation.

> When attempting to run the backend from the web interface, the www-data user does not have the necessary permissions to write to the filesystem (ie dhcpd.conf, dhcpd.conf.bak). The only good way that I can thinkto fix this would be to grant www-data write permission to the build dir. But that seems a little insecure to me. At least mention it in the module doc.
