Hello, I've installed Wordpress 4.5.1 in a PHP7 Application, but the Cron Jobs seems not to work properly/at all. I tried

/home/username$ crontab -l

and got this back

no crontab for username

so now I wonder what is wrong with the configuration (running on a Cloud Server) :/

Our Wordpress installer does not create any cron jobs in your crontab by default, so unless you you've created some cron jobs yourself, then "no crontab for username" is the expected result.

Hello, thanks but indeed I made the application then installed WP manually, as I already did lot of times with other customers on other Webfaction servers. I tried even via 3rd party "cron-fixing" plugins and manual php commands to set them up as well, but yet with no luck. The only difference this time is that everything is running on a cloud server setup, so I don't know if this could be somehow related.

Our cloud servers are functionally identical to our standard shared servers.

If you'd like to open a support ticket to let us know the exact cron job that you would like to run, you may do so via the Support menu item in our control panel.

OK, it's the "final solution" I wanted to avoid, but I'll open a ticket then. Thanks for the replies :)
