This question already has an answer here:

I have a hook_cron that regularly import contents from external site via drupal_http_request. However, I noticed that cron is not running. I am using Elysia cron module and I defined the job to run every 5 minutes */5 * * * *.

Out of curiosity I put this code variable_set('maintenance_mode', 1) to check if the site will go offline after five minutes but it wont.

I even add an entry */1 * * * * import_cron to the Script textarea on Elysia config page. But still not working. Any advice?
