    for some reason my users crons created in cPanel are not running

    I verified this by making a script in perl that outputs to a textfile the timestamp of when it was called.

    Unfortunately the perl script never gets called

    1 * * * * perl /home/solution/www/test.cgi
    Permission of script: 777

    Any suggestions?

    You could check that cron is working properly: service crond status

    You could also check that the cronjobs are listed correctly in /var/spool/cron/username.

    Lastly, check the permissions of the perl script - try 0755 instead.
