    Please fill in any relevant information that applies to you:
    • CentOS Version: i.e. CentOS 7
    • Centmin Mod Version Installed: 123.09beta01
    • Nginx Version Installed: 1.11.8
    • PHP Version Installed: 7.0.14
    • MariaDB MySQL Version Installed: i.e. 10.0.28 or 10.1.20
    • When was last time updated Centmin Mod code base ? : i.e. run centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 2 / Today
    Just inquiring, I have updated Centmin a few times as there have been many updates lately. I saw that my crons show down but now I check crontab - e and my crons are not listed anymore.

    Does Centmin delete crons on update? God bless you!

    Yes, somehow they have been deleted...

    The only thing I have done recently was upgrade Centmin as I have had other things to do...

    Code:
    #crontab
    11 */23 * * * /usr/local/src/centminmod/tools/autoprotect.sh 2>/dev/null
    0 */4 * * * /usr/bin/cminfo_updater 2>/dev/null

    Well, I did not touch it but somehow it was deleted. I will have to save it for further reference. The only thing that I did was update Centmin Mod... Seems that it stop working about 3 days ago.

    You're gonna have to look through system logs to see if your cron logs are there and can extract them from the files, last time i had to do this, if i remember correctly there was no record of run intervals, just the commands.

    Yep, commands you can see in cron log.
    Use number what you have to.
    Code:
    tail -10 /var/log/cron

    nothing in Centmin Mod updates would delete cronjobs and no yum updates i believe

    check your yum update history and see if anything in past 3 days was updated
    Code (Text):
    yum history list
    

    find transaction id from list and type
    Code (Text):
    yum history info XX
    

    where XX is transaction id from history list

    also search you command history for references to cron to see if you had any typos that could of wiped them
    Code (Text):
    history | grep cron

    I am not going to worry about it. I try to keep it updated but it seems to be fine. I just added back the cron jobs that I made so it is fine. Thanks for your help! God bless you!
