Hi,

I have amended the crontab on our webfaction dedicated system to equal what my sugarcrm install recommends:

          • cd /home/fullyweb/webapps/ffcrm; php -f cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

But when I look at the scheduler module in the crm admin, the log tells me the cron isn't running at all...

I'm a learning systems admin so explaining in simple terms would be great!

Regards Chris

Good to see you've solved the problem. Most likely it was due to not providing the full path to the "php" executable. The cron has a different environment, and php is not on the PATH by default.
