    When I attempt to add a new cron job via cPanel, it says it was successful but then when you view the cron jobs, none are listed, I checked to see if it just wasn't displaying them but they were stored backend, but the cron jobs aren't stored in the crontab either.

    When I went to /var/spool/cron/, I found that no file exists for the username of my cPanel account.

    When I look at the cron logs, no errors apparent:
    Do I just need to re-create the var/spool/cron/username file? If so, how can I do this?

    Ok...

    Try before executing as root:

    chmod a+s /usr/bin/crontab

    Giving permissions to execute crontab to others, problem saving cronjobs and watching them later worked at least for me.

    ;) Good luck.
