Hi,

There is no such thing as CRON is not working, it's a system level utility which always runs no matter what the conditions are.

The main issue with CRON jobs are the permissions and the ownership of the file you want to execute and what's it's trying to do.

So anybody who faces an issue with CRON should execute the CRON via SSH as a Webuzo user and not a ROOT user(this is the most common mistake most of the users do as the CRON entered via Webuzo always runs as Webuzo user who is an unprivileged user)

Hope this helps.
