This is the first time I configure a cron job in a VPS server, I always used some GUI like cPanel to do that. I need to configure a cron job of Sendy (FutureSpark - Ideas for the future to send the scheduled newsletters. The command is this: */5 * * * * php /home/nginx/domains/nl.architetturaecosostenibile.it/public/scheduled.php > /dev/null 2>&1 I used crontab -e to write that entry in the right place, and executing crontab -l my cronjob get listed. Using service crond status the cron deamon is running. Launching the php /home/nginx/domains/nl.architetturaecosostenibile.it/public/scheduled.php all works fine, but waiting for the cronjob doesn't run the script. What I'm wrong?
