Cronjob Not Running on Ubuntu Server

  • Posted April 23, 2015

Hello everyone,

My cronjob is not working,

I have this line in the end of “/tmp/crontab.QwCzqK/crontab” file:

0 4 * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/mysite.net/cron-wurfl.php

But it is not working. I should have it listed under CPVLab’s error log, like this: http://screencast.com/t/LcHyZcv8

But I didn’t have anything listed.

So, I decided to do it manually and visited http://mysite.net/cron-wurfl.php

And now, it shows the job as “started” but not finished: http://screencast.com/t/mZx2IYqyE

I appreciate your help,

If you could run this manually in your browser or use a service like this: https://www.easycron.com.

I added -f in between, lets see it will solve the problem.

I resolved this issue by getting an updated zip package from CPVlabs and also installing zlib extension. Using the command “yum install zlib-devel”

No php error in log any-more and cron job starts and finishes!

I’m having a similar issue, may be the same issue because the cron job starts but does not finish according to the error log page on cpvlabs…

My issue is once the cron job goes off, the php script goes in a loop and the log file starts to fill up space until I reboot the server.

Infinite loop - ( PHP Warning: feof() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /sys/www/server/public_html/cron-wurfl.php on line 0)

Either one of these Cron jobs will trigger the same error in the php.log file:

0 0 * * * cd /sys/www/server/public_html/;php cron-wurfl.php

0 0 * * * php /sys/www/server/public_html/cron-wurfl.php
