    hi guys, i am having a problem when i setup cronjobs, i have installed numerous wordpress blogs via cpanel and need to setup cronjobs for some of the plugins i have installed.
    i had no problem doing this on hostgator ? but i recently changed hosts and subscribed to vps which includes cpanel, the problem is when i copy and paste the cron command , everything seems to have gone well, but when i check the logs, it doesnt seem to be running.
    i am wondering is this because of my new host?? im lost guys.
    the plugins i use are straight forward , upload, install, setup campaign, get cron command and paste and thats it??
    any suggestions guy would be appreciated

    Hello :)

    To confirm, do you have root access to a VPS machine, or do you only have reseller access?

    If you have root access to the VPS, please try running the following command while logged into SSH as root:

    # service crond restart
    Check to see if the crond service restarts properly.

    Thank you.
