Hello Blainecar,

Sorry to hear that your cron job is not working. It appears to be using /bin/sh in the response. Check out our article on running cron jobs. The suggestion in the article is to use php -q for the PHP command. Something you don't have in your cron job line.

Hopefully, this will resolve the problem you're having! Please let us know if you require further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.
