Cron problem, System Cron Tasks don't completed successfully within the last 24 hours.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I getting this eror:

 

===========================

System Cron Tasks

The system cron does not appear to have completed successfully within the last 24 hours. Check your activity logs or learn more about enabling the cron in our documentation.

===========================

 

 

After try to search there is problem finally I Install new server with new fresh install. After config Cron, everything was work and get every day "WHMCS Cron Job Activity" email.

 

Just I setup of DataBase backup, config hosting servers. The problem start be same... (funny is everything work, but not at full what must cron do)

 

Everything work like shut to work, all config made like must be made (second install) everything is double check. I don't see any issue from my side (i hope).

 

Then I delete all not using servers, move cron back to the public, change back cron patch, delete mysql backup form whmcs. Everything was start work normally again...

 

I really don't know there is problem, really not cron directory.

 

Now I try catch problem step by step, In my opinion its a bug...

 

 

Maybe somebody can explain how to run immediately cron? what not need wait 24 hours or half day for it?

 

I'm not talk about whmcs/crons/cron.php or others but I need run immediately what cron who runs once a 24 hour...

 

in (Automation Settings -> Scheduling -> Time of Day) I need to forced to run it for my testing...

 

how to do it by WHMCS system? Directadmin panel? or ssh connection?

 

open in website cron.php its not work... there is another file of main cron?

 

thanks :)

Hi SVytis,

 

Thanks for your post on the community forums.

 

Can you confirm what your cron setup as?

 

What happens if you run the following in your server terminal

 

php -q /path/to/cron.php --force -vvv

Hi,

 

problem is still is here...

 

 

I delete all whmcs configuration (servers, backup and so), and start made force cron by ssh, Everything work fine without any problems, no problems, start config server back, one by one,

 

I config mysql backup to email, after FORCE cron i get emails, I get full cron work with the cron closing.

I config mysql backup to ftp, after FORCE cron i get emails, I get full cron work with the cron closing.

I config servers, after FORCE cron i get emails, I get full cron work with the cron closing.

I config everything what I was deleted, after FORCE cron i get emails, I get full cron work with the cron closing.

I move cron directory, write info to cron config and whmcs config there is cron, after FORCE cron i get emails, I get full cron work with the cron closing.

 

I start use normaly WHMCS without any problems, made some test users, everything is fine! no problems, I made more time of force cron, and cron work without any problems, I get emails, I get backup to FTP and email, Cron closing normaly...

 

whats all, I thing case is close...

 

 

Just now I was wait more then 24 hour until cron will make by system normal working without my force cron... to be sure what everything is perfect.

 

And is again problems, same problem:

[OK] Completed

 

 

 

Like you see system little stack on 72% (Server Usage Stats) but after min he past everything...

 

from WHMCS log not show anything more then (Automated Task: Starting Server Usage Stats) he stop here... and still I have "System Cron Tasks 24 hour error"

 

But in this case I get mysql backup email and to ftp. Just WHMCS logs stop at (Server Usage Stats) and then Cron was in schedule he stop and I don't get any mysql backup and so...

 

 

 

I made again same cron: php -q cron.php --force -vvv

 

And scenario is a same, 72% stop, after one min he past. everything OK by ssh, I get "WHMCS Database Backup" by email and FTP, WHMCS last log is "Automated Task: Starting Server Usage Stats" and still I have "System Cron Tasks 24 hour error"

 

 

I removed one server from servers setup, it was CentovaCast server witch I using, but this server was not connect to any product. Force cron past. No errors from log, and "System Cron Tasks 24 hour error was gone"

 

Its seems is working now, but it is same scenario like yesterday, It was work, no errors, all log is in same place, but after 24 hour its back to same problem without any changes...

 

 

I will check it. And inform if be same situation.

Hi,

 

Do you happen to have a server that is no longer active still trying to check for Usage Statistics?

 

What is your PHP Memory Limit & Timeouts?
