Hi,

I do hope someone here can help me, and I appreciate anyone who does try.

Basically, on my server you cannot do anything with cron jobs, i.e. edit/delete/create etc

The option is there with all the buttons, and when you try to save it no errors occur, but the cron is never created.

I have tried
- Updating cPanel
- Installing the Cron Addon
- Rebooting server several times after each attempt

Please can someone help me sort this out?

Thanks in advance,

Jay

I guess you can see the problem, is it a permission error?

Version:

WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-R10737
Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

THANKS!

It definitely looks like a permissions error but I'm not certain what's wrong off hand. If you Submit a Support Request we should be able to track it down quickly.

Make sure to post the resolution here if possible so others can benefit. Thanks

Hi,

Here is the resolution:

Code:
chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab
And crons are working perfectly now!

Thanks cPanel!

thanks

Thanks for posting your fix, Jay.

I had the exact same problem on a fresh Fedora server with a fresh Cpanel install (from download, not disk image).

Is this a bug in the Cpanel installer?

Cheers,

Shiraz

I'm having this same problem with a couple of exceptions -- there is nothing in my error logs and chmoding the /usr/bin/crontab file doesn't seem to help.

I'm running WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.6.0-R15062 on REDHAT Enterprise 3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

I transferred these accounts over from another server and all of the cron jobs I created on that server still exist and still seem to run, but they don't show up under Cron Jobs in cpanel and I can't create a new cron job -- even on a brand new account not transferred from the old server.

Edit -- turns out I was wrong. After trying the chmod fix a second time, everything seems to be working great now.
