    PHP CRON Job

    Hi All,

    Quick question regarding php and cron,

    here is my current path in the cron job etc:

    */5 * * * * /usr/bin/php -q /var/www/[hidden]/cron/cron_script.php |mail hidden@hidden-email.co.uk 2>&1

    The script basically queries the database and emails etc. When I visit the web page it works perfectly, but if I leave the script to be executed via cron it does nothing. I know it's working because I recieve the cron email from 'root'.

    Any ideas why it may not be working?

    I would really appreciate some advice on this,

    Thanks!!! ^_^

    Never mind, got it working. The issue was related to a path issue in my php script.
