    Two of our WHM clients have reporting their cron jobs have stopped working all of a sudden.

    One client is running:
    WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82
    RedHat Enterprise 3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    The other client is running:
    WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-C88
    RedHat Enterprise 3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    The cron jobs stopped working about 2 days ago. The cron log files don't show anything abnormal and all logging stopped the same time the crons stopped working (2 days ago).

    Was there any kind of Cpanel/WHM update over the past few days that may have caused this? What further steps can we take to investigate/resolve this issue?

    Thanks

    Hey,

    First check your crond service is working or not using the folowing command.
    ps -aux | grep crond

    If it is not working, run the following command

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/crond start

    I experienced this when I upgraded my 2 servers from the latest stable to the latest current release (to resolve the SquirrelMail bug). The crond service had stopped on both servers after the upgrade and I had to restart them manually.
