I'm troubleshooting a cron job not working, and the first thing I need to know is if the cron is actually running. I setup a cron job, and want to know if there is a way for me to tell if it is running?

1. Is there a log file that I can see that shows when my crons have ran?
2. Can I be sent an email when the cron job is ran?

Thanks Hub team, love you guys!

Hello,

Thanks for the questions!

1)Is there a log file that I can see that shows when my crons have ran?

Verification of the request is done by providing either the last 4 digits of the credit card or the Account Management Panel (AMP) password. The cron job log file is not accessible by the public, which is why you would need to contact support in order to e

2) Can I be sent an email when the cron job is ran?

Yes, you can actually set this up in the CRON job interface - it's called the Cron Email. You can learn more about it here: Cron Email


I hope this helps to answer your question! Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
