    Back after a long illness and directly with a question about ISPConfig :)
    I have a webspace with a moodle installation on it and it is set to PHP8.0. In ISPConfig i've created a cronjob for the webspace which runs this:
    /usr/bin/php8.0 /var/www/clients/client301/web509/web/admin/cli/cron.php
    After testing i've realiased this does not work as i get greeted with "/usr/bin/php8.0: No such file or directory". So next i went ahead and
    switched from the root user to web509 on the shell with the "su" command and checked the "/usr/bin/" folder. There is only "php7.4" (system default) and the link "php" to the alternatives thingy. The system has installed the version 8.0/8.1./8.2 and they are available under /usr/bin as root.

    Where do i need to make changes for the web509 user to be able to use "php8.X" so that the cron job can run successfully?

    Hope you are well now :)

    Uncder System > Server config > > Jailkit > Jailkit chroot app sections you need to add the relevant PHP versions. E.g. from the value on one of my test systems:
    basicshell editors extendedshell netutils ssh sftp scp groups jk_lsh php php7_4 php8_0 php8_1 php8_2
    But this will not add immediately to existing jails. To add php8_0 to existing jail /var/www/clients/client0/web1:
    jk_init -j /var/www/clients/client0/web1 php8_0
    pyte and till like this.

    And your cronjob line is likely wrong, it should be:

    /usr/bin/php8.0 /web/admin/cli/cron.php
    if its a jailed cronjob as /var/www/clients/client301/web509/ becomes / inside the jail.

    Thank you! Was not to serious, but working on a PC wasn't helping the healing that was kind of a bummer :p

    Already treid to add it to the Jailkit chroot app sections but i used . instead of _ but that would not have worked either for the existing once then ;-) It is working now, cheers!

    That's what i already figured out while making the post but did not edit it on here :) Thanks anyways!
