    crontab is no longer running the run-parts for the system like before:

    run-parts /etc/cron.daily: 1 Time(s)
    run-parts /etc/cron.hourly: 23 Time(s)

    these have not run since the 5/27 cpanel update. the crons in /var/spool/cron are all running fine for all accounts including root. i'm not sure how to get the proper crontab back for the system. if i recall, crontab -e used to look like this (below) but i'm not positive. i just know this piece is missing as some of my hourly and daily jobs are not performed from /cron.daily for example:


    # run-parts
    01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
    02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
    22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
    42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly

    So where did the above go and how do I correct this or check if it does still exist please.

    Your thoughts and help are appreciated. I thought this was considered the system cron that starts when the server starts, I just don't know where it is located and am comfused.
