CRON job not executing properly

i have setup a cron job to execute a php file every 5 minutes, so i highlighted every item on the list,
“when to execute” is set at "Times and dates selected below … "
and every minute is highlighted, 0 to 59.
But still the script is executed every minute…
all other time unit (hours, day) are set to “ALL”

please see the picture attached

that worked until the server was moved to another datacenter, i had to reboot webmin also. is it a reason for the cron not working? thanks .

i had to save and execute again and it now works perfectly, strange.


That is odd, though I’m glad it’s working now!

If you run into problems again, you may want to verify in the logs that the cron job really is being run when it should be.


hi, thanks for the advice.
Fortunately i had my php script that logs its own execution on a table that’s how i knew the Cron did not function properly.

nothing to add
