    I didn't see non-root users' cron running in /var/log/cron, it seems cron not work for non-root users.
    Please help me.

    I am using cpanel 11.36.1 (build 8) on Centos 6.4 64bit.

    Hello :)

    Have you checked to see if the "crond" service is running? You can verify this with a command such as:

    Code:
    # pidof crond
    If a process ID is not output, you can restart crond via:

    Code:
    # service crond restart
    Thank you.
