I have setup a cron job and it executes a php script. I believe the cron job is running, but it is not accomplishing the task I want it to do. There might be an error in my php script.

Is there a way for me to find out if my cron job, which executes a php script, is generating any error messages?

Thanks for the question!

If your cron job is running PHP code, you should be able to see any PHP errors in the PHP error log. Use the link to set up the log if you not done so already. You can also take the code and run it an a browser to test it live and see if you're getting any errors.

Finally, you can also request a copy of the Cron log from support by sending a verified email to technical support ( They verify with either the last 4 digits of the credit card on file or the Account Management Panel (AMP) password. If you suspect errors with the cron jobs, you can also request a copy of the Apache server log in order to correlate when the cron job is running and if errors are occurring on server at that time.

I hope that helps to clarify that issue! Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
