I'm using the MEC Events Calendar. I am trying to auto sync my events to Google Calendar.

Here is what the event plugin says:

Important Note: Set a cronjob to call /www/wp-content/plugins/modern-events-calendar/app/crons/g-export.php file at least once per day otherwise it won't export your website events into Google Calendar.

First off, I'm not sure how to do this? I installed the WP Crontrol plugin. With this I can add a PHP Cron Event. I am not sure what code I need to put in here to call it?

Your best option is probably to first explore your current hosting environment for the possibilities of Cronjobs. It might be called "Scheduled Tasks" or similar.

Alternatively you can schedule a task from within WordPress via wp_schedule_event() (though if you're using the default WP Cron, you can't be certain of it running at the specified time) and load that file via

require WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/plugins/modern-events-calendar/app/crons/g-export.php';
