Halp! Cron Job gone wild


#1

Hi All, I added a job in the CP with the wrong user for that particular site, so I deleted it, but it won’t stop running. Any clues how to resolve this or should I ticket?

Cheers

You can always modify your Crontab jobs via SSH.

  1. SSH to your domain.
  2. use command crontab -l to list your current crontab jobs.
  3. use command crontab -e to edit your crontab jobs.

as suggested in the wiki article, note: if you attempt to edit your crontab outside your home directory the save will fail. Go home!

That’s where the entry from the Control Panel Cron Jobs is put.
