Cron job format

Discussion in 'ISPConfig 3 Priority Support' started by Matthias Reich, Oct 3, 2019.

  1. I'm trying to implement a cron-job for Mautic ( using the ISPConfig interface and this is the format that they have given me:
    /usr/bin/php web_root/app/console mautic:emails:send

    However, this doesn't seem to work - is there a change I've to make for the PHP directory? The PHP being used is PHP-FPM and the version is PHP 7.2.21-1+ubuntu18.04.1 - running on nginx.

    The command you posted looks wrong, I doubt that the absolute path to the PHP script that you try to execute is "web_root/app/console". And ensure that you either created a cronjob without chroot or that you installed a php binary with all required modules into the chroor environment if you want to use a chrooted cronjob.
  3. The documentation of the software I'm trying to use doesn't mention anything about chroot.
    Under section Optional> Process Email Queue - is the cron job command I'm trying to execute. So in that context, is the one I posted correct?

    To me, it does not look correct for neither chroot nor outside of chroot. The mautic docs show the correct command with a full path btw. which would be in your case:

    /usr/bin/php /var/www/yourdomain.tld/web/app/console mautic:emails:send

    this is for a non chrroted cronjob, so ensure that you have set the cron limits on limits tab of the client to full cron before you create that cronjob.
