empty cron files being created on cron jobs


Recommended Posts



Just as the subject indicates, when a scheduled cron job occurs a new black/empty file named cron.php is being created in the home directory. This did not occur until switching from a reseller account on HostGator to a VPS account on KnownHost.

Kind regards,
