Movable Type Periodic Tasks (cron job) and cPanel

If you’re having issues getting cPanel to run the Movable Type periodic tasks tool through cron, try adding quotes:

Most documentation uses this example:
cd /home/username/public_html/mt/; ./tools/run-periodic-tasks

We had problems getting the script to execute till quotes were added:
cd ’/home/username/public_html/mt/’; ./tools/run-periodic-tasks
