    Good day everyone!

    I've set my server time in WHM and also i check the system time with hwclock command it shows the right time that i want. The cronjob for user root is performing according to my time that i set in cronjob without any problem but however other user i wonder why the cronjob perform 8 hours different than the time i set.

    I set 0 8 * * *, i check in the cron log it run at 1600.

    Anybody experience this problem before? i think cronjob are not following the system time that i just set, or i need to restart any service to get the cronjob under user account to be running at system?

    Thanks in advance!

    Go on, have a guess
    crond notoriously doesn't like large changes in the system time. To correct it all you usually have to do is restart cron:

    service crond restart
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
