Amazon S3/cron-job issues

I can't store my backup into my Amazon S3's bucket.  My cron-job script reads:
/usr/local/bin/php5 /home/mysite/public_html/xcloner/cloner.cron.php?config=dbase_mysite_nblog.php
On cron-job's execution I get this error:
Could not open input file: /home/mysite/public_html/xcloner/cloner.cron.php?config=dbase_mysite_nblog.php
Of course “/configs/dbase_mysite_nblog.php” already exists.
The cron.log shows entries like this only (nothing in between, no even an stamped time):
Log output started
Log output finished
If I click the link 'Execute Cron' the response is:
Access Denied for ip!
In “Backup store mode” I have tried both 'Local server' and 'Remote ftp account' with same result, however I'm not sure which is the correct one for Amazon S3.
Is there anything else I'm missing?

Try and use this cron command


/usr/local/bin/php5 /home/mysite/public_html/xcloner/cloner.cron.php dbase_mysite_nblog.php

Thanks Ovidiu,

I make it work using the wget command, however your suggestion worked just fine as well, so I reverted to the php command.

Regarding the 'Access denied' problem, in the 'Execute Cron' link, it was resolved adding mi IP.  I overlooked this 🙂

The only problem so far are the warnings due to the open_basedir setting, but overall it works okay anyway.
