PHP Cron Job
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:40:25 PM »
Trying to run a cron via the crontab in a user account, doesn't seem to trigger the job.
Cron was set to run every 5 mins, and the command line to the php script used is as follows: php -f /home/demo/public_html/cron.php

This however doesn't seem to be working - although the cron saves & shows as active in the webpanel.

Any ideas?
