I've never seen this before, my Status Report page says the last cron run was 35 minutes ago at 10:35 today. So I went to watchdog logs and could see that
Cron run completed at
I've set the cron to run on
30th minutes of every hour, so twice per hour using
sudo crontab -e so it's using the root user's crontab with the following command (cron key intentionally removed):
0,30 * * * * wget -O - -q -t 1 http://localhost/cron.php?cron_key=
I'm not using the
poormanscron in D6
I've manually run the cron and it updated the Status Report page after that.
What could cause this weird behavior? I'll admit that I haven't tried flushing the caches, but could caching be the cause of this? Or is there something more sinister?
I've dug around in syslog and found an error relating to the cron, but I have no idea what this means (cron key intentionally removed):
Aug 16 10:30:01 drupal-1 CRON: (root) CMD (wget -O - -q -t 1 http://localhost/cron.php?cron_key=) Aug 16 10:30:01 drupal-1 CRON: (CRON) error (grandchild #31372 failed with exit status 4)
I can see the
grandchild #31372 is referring to the first line
CRON but what does
exit status 4 mean?
I just wanted to also let people know that the cron has run without any problems so far afaik. But it could be that this is the first time I've noticed this as well.
