Most of my daily and periodic reports from my cron jobs, such as upcp, backup, rkhunter, etc have been missing since the update to Cpanel 11. I reviewed the cron log, and these jobs are running, but no reports. I tried modifying cron, via crontab -e with a MAILTO statement with little effect, a few reports appeared for that day, but after the next nightly cycle they stopped. I don't see any other warnings, errors or problems in my exim, message or security logs.

I can run these scripts manually without error, so I don't think they are failing.

So I am kinda stuck now trying to figure out what to do next, short of opening an incident request. Anyone have a suggestion what to try next?

Not receiving log watch notices here either.. Updated as prescribed:

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 20 14:04 logwatch-7.3.6/

Settings:
# Default person to mail reports to. Can be a local account or a
# complete email address. Variable Print should be set to No to
# enable mail feature.
MailTo = [email protected]
# WHen using option --multiemail, it is possible to specify a different
# email recipient per host processed. For example, to send the report
# for hostname host1 to [email protected], use:
#Mailto_host1 = [email protected]
# Multiple recipients can be specified by separating them with a space.

# Default person to mail reports from. Can be a local account or a
# complete email address.
MailFrom = Logwatch

# If set to 'Yes', the report will be sent to stdout instead of being
# mailed to above person.
Print = No

# The default detail level for the report.
# This can either be Low, Med, High or a number.
# Low = 0
# Med = 5
# High = 10
Detail = 5


# The 'Service' option expects either the name of a filter
# (in /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/*) or 'All'.
# The default service(s) to report on. This should be left as All for
# most people.
Service = All
# You can also disable certain services (when specifying all)
Service = "-zz-network" # Prevents execution of zz-network service, which
# prints useful network configuration info.
Service = "-zz-sys" # Prevents execution of zz-sys service, which
# prints useful system configuration info.
Service = "-eximstats" # Prevents execution of eximstats service, which
# is a wrapper for the eximstats program.
# If you only cared about FTP messages, you could use these 2 lines
# instead of the above:
#Service = ftpd-messages # Processes ftpd messages in /var/log/messages
#Service = ftpd-xferlog # Processes ftpd messages in /var/log/xferlog
# Maybe you only wanted reports on PAM messages, then you would use:
#Service = pam_pwdb # PAM_pwdb messages - usually quite a bit
#Service = pam # General PAM messages... usually not many


I ran logwatch from the command line and it ran but still not report in my mail.. so now what??
