    Hi everyone,

    can you please look at error I found during /scripts/upcp --force run:

    Doing a manual update...
    Cpanel updates are coming from layer2.cpanel.net
    "/scripts/.crontab":4: bad hour
    crontab: errors in crontab file, can't install
    pw: user 'daemon' is already locked
    Ftp Setup Script Version 6.0
    This is the pure-ftpd installer

    I have freebsd 5.4, cpanel running.

    Thanks.

    Try renaming /scripts/.crontab and running /scripts/upcp --force again.

    If /scripts/.crontab is needed, it will surely be downloaded again and, perhaps, it will work.

    /scripts/.crontab: No such file or directory

    Resolved!

    Hi,

    If you're still having this issue, I found (for me) it has nothing to do with any cPanel update. Check your crontab for blank lines inbetween the entries, using
    Code:
    crontab -e
    . Each entry needs to be on it's own line without wrapping.

    There is no "/scripts/.crontab." It's a crontab issue, not a upcp issue.
