Cron errors here after 3.1 update 🙁

Hi Ovidiu,

after updating to version 3.1, my cron jobs stopped working properly.

 

This is the command I always used for one of my sites. http://www.neoz.it

/usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php

I get :


Content-type: text/html
<h2>To run this script you need to create a custom config file inside XCloner Config, and call the script using php cli command like this:</h2>
<strong>php /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php mycustomconfig.php</strong>


 
Also tried with configuration file and command :


/usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php neoz.php

and I get :

Content-type: text/html
<h2>To run this script you need to create a custom config file inside XCloner Config, and call the script using php cli command like this:</h2>
<strong>php /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php mycustomconfig.php</strong>


 
AND

 /usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php?config=neoz.php

and I get :

Status: 404 Not Found
Content-type: text/html

No input file specified.

 

With previous version of XCloner Cron Jobs always worked perfectly on my 3 website without config file and command :

/usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php 

 

Please … can you help me ? Smile

The correct cron command should be this one

 

/usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php neoz.php

 

Make sure you reinstall XCloner latest version, the cloner.cron.php file should have this code at the top

 

if(!defined('STDIN') ) {
echo  "<h2>".$topErrorLine1."</h2>\n";
echo "<strong>".$topErrorLine2."</strong>\n";
exit;
}

 

Let me know if you have further issues

I did it Ovidiu. And I checked the code of cloner.cron.php. It corresponds 🙂

 

But the backup does not start and I get the same message :

 

Content-type: text/html

<h2>To run this script you need to create a custom config file inside XCloner Config, and call the script using php cli command like this:</h2>
<strong>php /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php mycustomconfig.php</strong>

🙁

Could you create a new php file and add this code inside and tell me what is the output?

 

<?php

echo php_sapi_name();

Sorry Ovidiu,

i created test.php and lounched a cron with this command :

/usr/bin/php  /home3/neozit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/test.php

This is what I get in email  as a report.

Content-type: text/html

Check this forum post http://www.xcloner.c.....e-2/#p9990 , might be best to do that in your case and add a custom validation if you like. What php version are you using?
