    Hi,

    I started (after messing with the server) to get an error
    message every 5 minutes from Cron Daemon.

    Subject:
    Cron <root@jrmed> root /usr/libexec/atrun

    Message:
    root: not found


    Don't understand it !!!
    The roots crontab is in /etc/crontab and the owner is root.
    The atrun script is located at the place it says.

    Thanks, Jerry

    Modify the cronjob to be;

    time command (get rid of the root word)

    So intead of

    root /usr/libexec/atrun

    you have

    /usr/libexec/atrun

    That should fix it.

    Thanks !!!

    Below is the roots cron file.
    I have not added, do not need anything else than cpanels
    and server default settings.

    Is this correct, something missing ?
    (I'll remove "root" as you said but I don't get that fix since
    it has been working before or has root been added...)

    I have never seen it work with the word root in there. Cron jbs work as time/command and root is not a command, hence the error.
