[svlug] Urgent help needed -- Cpanel and cron jobs

Hey all,

We maintain a PHP 5 code base for a client that 
has about 100 systems installed on a pair of Red 
Hat servers.

They administer the systems through Web Host 
Manager with each site having their own Cpanel 

The problem is with a few cron jobs configured 
through Cpanel (php files). We have four of them 
that are scheduled to fire off, but they don't 
seem to be working.

I have them writing a text file with nothing more 
than a time stamp to show when they ran, but they 
are not showing up.

Since we are mostly a coding shop and not sys 
admins, the client is willing to pay a consultant 
to get some expertise on this issue.

You would be working through me since I know the 
situation, for whatever that is worth, to get it 
best described to you.

This is an urgent need! We must solve this problem.

Thanks tons!
