Cron.php Not being called - Permission problem

Cron.php Not being called - Permission problem

Yes I know another Cron problem with version 1.9, but I honestly have looked through so many posts here and on stack.esxchange and I have gotten nowhere.

 

So I have gone into my Cpanel (Magento 1.9.2.2) and have tried several different cron job calls.  like

 

  • /usr/bin/php -f /home/exmaple/public_html/cron.php
  • php -f /home/example/public_html/cron.php
  •  /bin/sh /home/example/public_html/cron.sh

I also have the AOE plugin installed. I have generated a schedule in the plugin and also went in my phpmyadmin and the cron table has a list of jobs that are "pending"

 

For the longest time it said no heart beat until I disables the htaccess file in the root directory where my magento store  is installed.  From there I can type in the url/cron.php and it will show a blank page but I begin to receive emails and when i refresh AOE it shows the cron jobs processed.  The cron.php and sh files are set to 744.  If I disable htaccess and manually access the php file...it works and that is as close as I have gotten to getting the system to function.  When I bring back the htaccess file i get the 404 default magento screen and nothing gets processed.  I'm not sure how to fix this?

/bin/sh /home/example/public_html/cron.sh is the only cron job you have to run. 

Classic Magento crontab line looks something like this:

*/5 * * * * /bin/sh /[magento_path]/cron.sh

*/5 * * * * pattern means: run cron.sh after every five minutes. What's yours?

That's exactly what I have but I'm calling the cron.php

Re: Cron.php Not being called - Permission problem

You should call cron.sh as it's called from cron.php anyway (even though there are exceptions, such as store running on Windows stack).

Thanks. I already tried calling the shots file with the above code before switching to php and it still shows nothing being processed. I have a list of job in the cron schedule table of my phpmyadmin showing pending...
