Hello,

Additional testing shows the issue relates to Cpanel::Cron::Utils operating on the wrong binary. CPANEL-5479 will ensure this is automatically corrected, however until that case is released, please run this command manually and let us know if it prevents the issue from reoccurring:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl -MCpanel::Cron::Utils -e 'Cpanel::Cron::Utils::run_crontab("args"=>["-l"])'
Thank you.
Ran that command on my server which is not showing any cron jobs in Cpanel > Cron Jobs.

Then went back to any cpanel > cron jobs is now shows this error:

"Permission on “/usr/bin/crontab” are wrong (4755). Please set to 755."

Any further ideas please?

Hello,

This is a separate bug that's isolated to the use of the X3 theme. Internal case CPANEL-6038 is open to address this issue. A resolution is currently scheduled for inclusion with the next version 56 build, and I will update this thread when it's released. The current workaround is to switch the account to the Paper Lantern theme. Here's a blog post on the X3 theme that you may also find helpful:

It’s time to say goodbye to X3 | cPanel Blog

Thank you.

Edit: The internal case has changed to CPANEL-6038.

To update, the resolution stemming from CPANEL-6038 was released as part of cPanel 56.0.16:

Fixed case CPANEL-6038: Don't complain about permissions of crontab binary.

Thank you.
