I just migrated 200+ accounts from an old cpanel server to a new one. After all the usual tweaks I am seeing some people complain about cron jobs failing with permission denied errors.

One user runs a job " /usr/bin/curl -s https://www.xxxxxxx.org/membership/cron " hourly for years, but on the new server gets emails saying

"/usr/local/cpanel/bin/jailshell: /usr/bin/curl : Permission denied"

I'm guessing something needs to be tweaked on the new server, but I am not sure. Any ideas ?

This is for Cpanel 84.0.4 on Centos 7.7

Thank you.

What are the permissions of /usr/bin/curl ?
If it is 750 change it to 755.
I checked in couple of our servers and seems to be 755.
This has been discussed here also:

For some reason it was 700

Almost everything else was 755 or at least 750. I changed it and will ask the users if it works now. Thankis.
