ERROR: WHMCS Daily System Cron Attention Needed

Recommended Posts

I changed servers and am getting this error email every 5 minutes. I have the cron set up correctly, see below. I did have to change username on the account. I corrected the username in all the paths I am aware of. I don't know what else to do.

*/5 * * * * php -q /home/xxxxxx/public_html/clients/crons/cron.php

Here's the email I get every 5 minutes.

Your WHMCS is configured to perform the Daily System Cron during the hour of 8 am. However, the Daily System Cron did not execute within that hour as expected.

This may be due to the scheduled time specified in your web hosting control panel's cron entry. Please ensure your web hosting control panel executes the WHMCS System Cron (cron.php) at least once during the hour of 8 am.

If you have confirmed that setting, and you continue to receive this message, then please refer to the WHMCS Cron documentation to ensure you have itemized the appropriate command and any additional options.

Please contact WHMCS Support if you require further assistance.

If the cron is setup properly (pointing to the correct directory) then try changing the php timezone to the correct one.

You might want to move your cron folder to somewhere outside of public_html as well

And do not forget to mention the custom directory on your 'configuration.php' as it is recommended from a security point-of-view.
