It's not a cron problem | Forum

I have some users showing online permanently but not all

i have been in contact with my hosts and cron.php is running correctly at a 5 minute interval

so why do certain random people remain online permanently?

this is really bugging me now, someone must know :-/

thanks for reading

do you mean this user info ?

On my oxwall-testing side is this information on "Latest" as standard.
in this case the userlist staying all time, after i click the "Online" bottom
then i receive the actual list of users.

in the section of "Members" there is the same Listing with standard at "Latest", have you there all members with the green sign "Online now" ?

The _only_ reason why members are always shown as online is cron issues. I don't know any other reasons.

some are permanently online and some are not

the cron is running perfectly according to my host and cron jobs are supported by my host

they say it's not a cron issue, also ,I know my cronjob is working as i didn't have this problem before updating to 1.3.1

is my site corrupted?

the ones not online may sign out before leaving.  that would show the symptoms you describe.

Check cron.  It is the most obvious answer.  Hosts can be wrong.

my cron is

/usr/local/bin/php -q /home/*******/public_html/fishface/ow_core/cron.php

Do you have access to your server via SSH? Try running your cron command there - if it runs w/o errors, it works fine. If it displays errors when runs, the answer is obvious.
