The problem is that /etc/cron.d/softaculous is in DOS format (reported by "nano") and it most likely contains some hidden characters :

Jun  6 17:14:01 facpanel crond[22132]: (root) CMD (/usr/bin/php /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous/cron.php >> /dev/null 2>&1^M)

Quick fix :

Code
echo '1 8 * * * root /usr/bin/php /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous/cron.php >> /dev/null 2>&1' > /etc/cron.d/softaculous
And it's working :

But there are no hidden characters and how is it in DOS format ?
There seems to be a problem of SHELL.
Can you please try :
Code
SHELL=/bin/sh
1 8 * * * root /usr/bin/php /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous/cron.php >> /dev/null 2>&1


Dont forget the extra Line Break at the end!

I had tried to declare the shell, already - no joy.

This is what nano is reporting :

Quote
[ Read 1 line (Converted from DOS format) ]

This does fix the issue :
Code
echo '1 8 * * * root /usr/bin/php /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/softaculous/cron.php >> /dev/null 2>&1' > /etc/cron.d/softaculous

Yes, the command is the same, but it gets rid of the DOS format, as the command is written by a linux system  :)

I assume you are developing your program under Windows ? I had the same problem before switching my own machine to Fedora.

I think this could be a problem.
We used a lin break in the real sense! :

PHP Code

 $data $time.' root /usr/bin/php '.$globals['path'].'/cron.php >> /dev/null 2>&1
'



Observe the Line break we provide

I am not a PHP programmer, but the line break is most likely the problem here  :-)

Ok found the error!
Its a \r carriage return.
In the above code its \r\n causing the error.

Linux wants only \n !
Hence the error
