Please, read carefully cron instalation manual
You need to put this line
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php /home/mysite/public_html/ow_cron/run.php>/dev/null 2>&1
not in ow_cron/run.php
you need to put it to cronjob settings.

i buy VPS for my oxwall and its have win 2003 server
i find 1 GREAT ADDON in FIREFOX its like cronjob (addon name: Cronzilla)
u just set address and time
and if firefox stay open
its refresh your Cron every min or even sec (100% test OK)
and its really easy!
its good for Host dont let u do cronjob every min
love oxwall…

I am afraid that with such Cronzilla your oxwall's cron will not work. Cos ow_cron/run.php must be run from shell only. It can be done only with crontab utility or Window's task manager :)

I have tried 1.3.2 and now back to 1.3.1 and the problem persists for me in fact 1.3.1 at least is fully functional as oxwall stands by doing nothing to inform us if they are fixing issues or anything only one tech has helped me and even that person failed to fix the user log out problem

The only reason why your members remain online is Cron issue. Make sure it is configured properly by running it via SSH.
