I set up a crontab task to run hourly. This is a task the executes a wget command to work around the MySQL server has gone away error. However, the task seems to only have been running between 3 and 10 AM. What gives? Here is my crontab entry:
0 * * wget http://some.site.com/Blah
wget writes a Blah file (then Blah.1, Blah.2 etc. but only till 10:00 AM. Then it appears the task is not executing. (The real URL has been changed to protect secret projects. ;) )

I looked up your account and visited the real URL with wget locally and in a browser locally, it provides a 500 error, is that normal?
What I mean, is there something special that makes this only work on that machine, or some other reason it would be having a 500 when I visit it, or could it be the source of the issue.
