    I've started getting the following error recently. No changes have been made to the server that I am aware of. Any help in solving this error is greatly appreciated.

    Code:
    Anacron job 'cron.daily'
    
    
    /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch:

    Apparently, ptrace was enabled on the server and was causing issues with many root actions, including cron jobs. My hosting provider disabled it and rebooted the server. It appears to be fixed.
