    Hello everyone,

    I used cPanel to install and try out cPSupport and ended up deleting it after finding I couldn't get it to work correctly on my system; however, remnants of it still remain in the crob jobs (apparently).

    I am still getting e-mails notifying me (100s) that the job has failed because the directory does not exist anymore. I had to manually delete this job after uninstalling cPSupport, and even manually checked the spool file using this command:

    crontab -e -u <insert username here>

    I checked every username on my server, and still nothing. Where is this secret job coming from?

    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    Check in /var/spool/cron/* and /etc/cron* to make sure it is not listed in any of those
