    Good afternoon,

    I am new to the forum and I was looking if there was any solution to the error is presenting the cron daemon module in my case but I did not succeed, so try to explain my case.

    cPanel Version: 11.52.0 (build 17)

    Every day the system issues error mails like this:

    Example 1:

    Subject: Cron <bvb@stark> php -q /home/bvb/public_html/clientes/pipe/pop.php > /dev/null
    Content:
    invalid 337-sec old lock file /home/virtfs/_lock/501 created by an unknown process was not cleaned up (removing)


    Example 2:

    Subject: Cron <bvb@stark> php -q /home/bvb/public_html/clientes/pipe/pop.php > /dev/null
    Content:
    invalid 186-sec old lock file /home/virtfs/_lock/501 created by an unknown process was not cleaned up (removing)


    Example 3:

    Subject: Cron <bvb@stark> php -q /home/bvb/public_html/clientes/pipe/pop.php > /dev/null
    Content:
    attempt to lock file /home/virtfs/_lock/501 timed out after 25 attempts; lock still held by pid 29042
    Could not create lock file: /home/virtfs/_lock/501



    Every day about 10 or 20 emails like someone has gone through something like this?

    The support recommended I upgrade to a version that does not have this defect, but in this case I can suggest some specific version?

    Grateful for your support.

    Remember that my native language is Spanish, I am using a translator to write.

    Hello :)

    We do have an internal case (FB-90853) open to address a similar issue. Could you verify how often this cron job is running?

    Thank you.
