Overcoming cron directory whitespaces interdiction from hosting company

I'm trying to overcome an interdiction of my hosting company (ovh) to add cron directory whitespaces.

As a result, my directory cron that should look like this:

…/com_xcloner-backupandrestore/cloner.cron.php my_custom_name.php
doesn't work 🙁


So I read this thread here on the joomla forums where Ovidiu sugested to overcome this limitation by modifying the cloner.cron.php script manually to take that name some other way… with other arguments perhaps.

However this person just hardcoded the config name in the script and running it succesfully. But… he didn't posted the code Cry


I'm wondering if someone can help with this as in the other thread didn't get answers… Thanks in advance!
