Abbey Sep 7 '12
it's your cron, you set it wrong.
Donamix Sep 8 '12
No, the cron is all right i set it every minute
DeFender Sep 8 '12
yes, it is the problem.
Purusothaman Ramanujam
Even if you have set the cron to run for every minute, have you verified it is set correctly.

The path to set the cron differs from hosting to hosting.
DeFender Sep 8 '12
