Running PHP cron under user fail
« on: February 08, 2024, 02:25:06 AM »
I tried to run php cron job with the following command:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/bin/php /home/xxxxxx/src/file.php
But it returned with error:

-bash: /usr/local/bin/php: Operation not permitted

Trying to run with specified PHP version like:
Code: [Select]
/opt/alt/php82/usr/php
also give error.

If I run the cron as root:
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/local/bin/php /home/xxxxxx/src/file.php
It works perfectly.

So, how can a user run PHP cron in CWP? and How to run PHP cron with specified PHP version if we have multiple PHP version installed?

Thanks.

Are you calling this from r00t's crontab / system crontab and want to run as a normal user?
Code: [Select]
sudo -u $USER /opt/alt/php82/usr/php /home/$USER/src/file.phpOtherwise, put the php command in the user's crontab.

The cronjob is under cwp's user. But the process has never run. No emails come to the inbox as it should be.
So, I tried to login to SSH as root and run that cronjob, and it gave the error permission denied.
If I run it with sudo, it works, and the email goes to the inbox.

That is why I want to know, is PHP cron job just allowed to run under root and not user?

Thanks.
