    I have an issue where each cron is ran two extra times every time a cron job is ran automatically. So, if a root user or a cpanel runs a cron it's ran 2 more times instead of just one time. How do I fix this? Thank you.

    Hello :)

    The cron jobs are stored in the following location:

    # /var/spool/cron/$username

    Do you see the cron entries duplicated in their respective files? If not, you could try restarting "crond" via:

    Code:
    # service crond restart
    Thank you.

    No. I don't see any duplicate entries. I will just restart cron. Thank you.
