Errror in CRON-Job | Forum

Barry Feb 3 '11
I'm a little new to the subject of running cron jobs, but was curious. I think I finally entered the correct command for my server 24 hosting.
This is the command i used in cpanel

/usr/local/bin/php /home/domain/public_html/subdomain/ow_cron/run.php

replacing domain with my domain name and subdomain with my subdomain name.

Since imputing this I have not got an error message sent back to me in email and something triggered on my site that I was trying to configure. I tried a data import using wall.fm export files and salt that seemed to have completed and I suddenly had a lot of updates to my pluggins.

The reason why I'm curious is under cpanel it says that an email will be sent to your ever time cron job runs.

I am not getting emails? is there something written in the run.php that suppresses the email from being sent?

Quote from Pedro

the correct path is /usr/bin/php /home/user/public_html/yourdomain/ow_cron/run.php that will work. with no -q or anything else. also make sure you enter the correct info for the minutes job to run. minutes 0-59 Hours 0-23 day of the months 1-31 Month 1-12 and days of the week 0-7. enjoy the info. try that you will not receive cron mail

I guess this answers my question?

Is there a reason that it overrides cpanel sending email, is it hardcoded in run.php somewhere i'm missing?

You don't get any emails cos cronjob doesn't have any errors/output.

Hi. I realy got the same problem.
I tried to setup cron job in several different ways. Yet I got my updates working, but mail invitations and other mail services are not.
Maybe I have to change something in run.php file?
Help me to overcome this problem, please.

Do you have mail() function connected with your sendmail server?
