    I've Magento 1.9 running with Centminmod on a dedicated OVH server but my cronjobs dont seem to be running.
    This is what I've in my cron file (I access it by crontab -e):
    0 */4 * * * * /usr/bin/cminfo_updater
    */5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/php -f /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/cron.php
    */5 * * * * /usr/bin/sh /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/cron.sh

    Can anyone help with it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Nov 16 12:20:01 ns339261 CROND[9183]: (root) CMD (/usr/local/bin/php -f /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/cron.php)
    Nov 16 12:20:01 ns339261 CROND[9184]: (root) CMD (/usr/bin/sh /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/cron.sh)

    Hey, I am still facing the issue. Same lines the cron file apart from one extra line at start which sends me an email of the cron progress.
    This is what I get in the email:
    which: no php in (/usr/bin:/bin)

    Any idea how can I fix this?

    you're running OVH's custom kernel see Download - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS

    try

    Code:
    */5 * * * * /usr/bin/env php -f /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/public/cron.php

    or you can try editing /etc/crontab and append to PATH variable /usr/local/bin

    Code:
    PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin

    I just tried this. Let's see what happens. Should I do something about kernal now or it should be fine?

    OVH custom kernels have security and other restrictions so have unforseen issues in general .. so usually I wipe the server first and rebuild using CentOS distro kernel/OS template for new setups. Of course backup all your data first.

    depends on your app as to what cronit.php does, wordpress does this for wp-cron php file file but such stuff is left to end users to figure out
