I have a Magento v188.8.131.52 running on Godaddy server. Im trying to configure my cron jobs on cPanel with this code
wget -O /dev/null -q http://mydomain.com/cron.php > /dev/null
unfortunately it didnt run. So I end up with installing a module Magento New Order Email , I tried it first to my test server (not godaddy) and it works well. But when I trying it on the live site which is Godaddy hosted, it did not work! I cannot receive any order notification and when I checked the core_email_queue on the database, I see that there are email queue stored but not sent to me. Anybody knows how to fix this? I also tested the mail server in php and its working.
Did you try running the Cron Job with PHP instead of WGET?
Besides that, I'm not sure if you tried this solution yet but if you haven't, feel free to give it a try.
Open up the cron.php file in your Magento root directory (usually "public_html") and look for the following line of codes:-
$isShellDisabled = (stripos(PHP_OS, ‘win’) === false) ? $isShellDisabled : true;
Add the following codes in a new line exactly after the above line of codes:-
$isShellDisabled = true;
