Thanks for the replies. No success … but, maybe a start
Some of the action/preferences options suggested just don’t exist on my web interface. The version for the interfaces is v18.12 . For example:
Actions > Preferences > Feeds >Feeds with errors
Just isn’t there. I do have “feeds” and I can click on one and bring up an option panel. But, nothing there about “feeds with errors”, etc.
So, I tried to do stuff via ssh. My first time with ssh on the site I have … but it appears I don’t have sudo to play with. I will have to contact the provider, Namecheap, and see what up there.
The cron seems to be running as root, not www-data.
Listing the crontab does work:
7,17,34,49 * * * * /opt/alt/php56/usr/bin/php /home/XXX/public_html/rss/update.php --feeds --quiet
And the file in opt appears to be there. If I execute the crontab line from the CLI it returns immediately with no errors.
And, the file update.php is there on the server
I’m wondering if there is anyway to see if the update command is doing anything. I suppose I’d need to query the database, probably nothing being stored in a file?
