The most important thing is to be consistent with your regime. Watering when the foliage is drooping slightly and the top layer of compost is drying out is an ideal method, but if you do that, then stick to that. If you water slightly more frequently, don't then leave them for a week without any. You're more likely to have fruits splitting if you're inconsistent.
Mine have to be undercover through summer as we don't get consistent night time temps, so I would have to water slightly more than someone with plants outdoors in the ground, for instance. Ventilation is important too.
Once you get a feel for what suits your conditions, it becomes much easier
