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.

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.

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