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.
