How do I enable command line import for subscribers?

Importing large CSV files from the web interface, like shown in this article, can be problematic sometimes. This is why we offer an alternative. We offer a way to upload your CSV file which will be queued and then processed by a command line command.

In order to enable this, you have to go to Backend > Settings > Import/Export and set the “CLI import enabled” option to Yes.
Next step is to click the info icon near this option. This will tell you to add a new cron job to your server. For example:

Don’t forget to save your changes.

When you will try to import a new CSV file for example, you will get new import options:

Using the new option means that your file will be uploaded on the server first. When the import starts, the file is divided into multiple smaller files and processed in parallel for a faster import.
