Cron job error message
« on: September 11, 2014, 01:59:30 AM »
Hi I am getting the following message in my email:

/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 1: ?php: No such file or directory
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 2: /******************************************************************************: No such file or directory
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 3: Etano: command not found
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 4: ===============================================================================: command not found
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 5: File:: command not found
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 7: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/home/saisei/public_html/life/tools/cron/cron.php: line 7: `Software by:                DateMill (http://www.datemill.com)'

What may be the reason? Could you help me?

Maverick, I think maybe you should place a locked topic about this at the heading of the General forum, since it's a common topic.
If you see that I'm logged in forever... it just means I turned the page on my browser and forgot to logout.
