I am using Drupal 7.

When I am running cron manually as an admin, I get white page. When I am looking at the dblog report immediately after trying to run cron, I always see the following notice:

TYPE job_scheduler
DATE Monday, March 17, 2014 - 00:15
USER Guest (not verified)
LOCATION http://www.site.com/admin/reports/status/run-cron
MESSAGE Finished processing scheduled jobs (0 sec s, 0 total, 0 failed).

It is also strange that the user of this activities is "Guest (not verified)" and not Admin.

Yesterday I made alot of changes and installed some performance module as the boost module, file cache module and advagg module. But I always run cron after installing a module.
After few tests and enabling/disabling modules, it looks like that the problem is the filecache module

Can someone help me solve this issue?

  • I can confirm this issue, but not solve it... using Cron Debug showed me where the error was occurring. Manually removing the filecache files made cron go again (a cache clear wouldn't do it -- some esoteric cron info is stored in cache_bootstrap, I believe). Happened to me on a huge import. Filing an issue on the filecache page is probably the best bet for a fix.

Hard to debug without further details. If you get white page then check your Webserver logs, especially error log. You can also try to run drush cron to catch some more details (error messages).
