phpmyadmin cron upgrade issue on NGINX with PHP7.0


I followed this tutorial on installing phpmyadmin on NGINX with PHP7.0 and the issue I have is that my Cron job does not seem to work.

When I login to phpmyadmin I can see that it hasn’t been upgraded to the latest version.

I followed the tutorial exactly like it is written except I changed the script to

cd /etc/phpmyadmin/ git pull -q origin STABLE

Beacuse it is the folder my phpmyadmin is in.

Is there anything I have missed?

Best regards.

Sorry to see that your question hasn’t received an answer yet. Unfortunately, after this much time, it is unlikely that an answer for this specific question will be provided. For people still landing here via search, it will help to look at the script’s output log in addition to the CRON entires in the syslog file.

In that tutorial, all output is discarded (forwarded to /dev/null):

0 5 * * * /home/user/scripts/ >> /dev/null 2>&1

To save all output to a file, replace /dev/null with, for example, /home/user/scripts/pma_update.log or any path for that matter as long as it is writeable by the user who owns the cron job.
