    Hello, I am having trouble getting a cron job to work. It is the only one I am using and it is the one to run the automated settings in WHMCS (process invoices, etc).

    I am getting this message emailed to me every time the cron tries to run.

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/jailshell: 5: command not found

    It used to work but now I think it has been updated or something and it isn't working now. I am getting a cron status error in WHMCS.

    I am with Inmotion hosting and they won't help because they say they don't support WHMCS and have told me to get support from WHMCS directly. The trouble is I am getting WHMCS through Inmotion so I can't get support from the WHMCS site at all as I am not registered as a user with them. Inmotion told me I should be able to use my username and password that I use to login to WHMCS but it just doesn't work, my email isn't registered with WHMCS at all!

    The last time this cron job was completed was 02/04/2017. Maybe I have done something to make it not work but I can't think of what it may be.

    Looking for any clues at all as to where I should look to fix this problem please.

    If you've double checked your cron settings in your cPanel for this and they are correct, you'll need to speak with your Hosting Provider about this.
