Email not sending

I have installed aoeScheduler and after waiting 5 minutes I get the heartbeat.


When i look at the scheduler it says: missed

Multiple tasks with the same job code were piling up. Skipping execution of duplicates.


The emails are getting generated in the tables core_email_queue and core_email_queue_recipients and then they get cleaned out at some point (i guess midnight) but no emails are going.


I have installed a test wordpress blog on the same server in a subfolder and set up contact form 7 to test and it does send the email so I dont think it is an issue with the server.


i have set up my cron job

*/5 * * * * /bin/sh /home/tvpwhole/public_html/ >/dev/null 2>&1


I have added the test  queries to my cron and all i get is 

Cron Daemon		10:44 AM (4 minutes ago)
Status: 500 Internal Server Error 

* * * * * ! test -e /home/tvpwhole/public_html/maintenance.flag && /bin/bash /home/tvpwhole/public_html/ --mode always
* * * * * ! test -e /home/tvpwhole/public_html/maintenance.flag && /bin/bash /home/tvpwhole/public_html/ --mode default


Any help is appreciated

Re: Email not sending

You installed the ionCube Loaders for PHP 5.4 (as indicated by the filename), yet you have PHP 5.5 installed (X-Powered-By: PHP/5.5.31).

You can download the appropriate ionCube Loaders from here or use the Loader Wizard available here (zip,gz) to help with the installation; in any case, you'll have to remove the zend_extension = <path to the outdated loaders/> line from your php.ini and restart your PHP/Apache process to remove the outdated Loader extension.
