I'm trying to update Tiny Tiny RSS every 30 minutes. It's not working, and running the update script manually works just fine, so I think it must be the crontab?

/30 * * * php54 /home/user/webapps/rss/update.php -feeds >/dev/null 2>&1

(user=my actual userid)

No, your php54 command is actually located at /usr/local/bin/php54, and /usr/local/bin isn't on cron's path by default. So, you will want to use /usr/local/bin/php54 instead.

Also, there are a number of other potential issues relating to the environment that your cronjob runs in. The comments in this related community post discuss the topic in detail.

Hope that helps!
