CRON not executing hourly/daily

Hi all,

I’m experiencing some issues on running CRON for Matomo.
I’m running two setups. One in a Compute Engine in Google Cloud with Debia Linux.
Other is running Ubuntu via Kamatera.

Both setups can’t seem to CRON properly.

However, the ubuntu setup is logging that CRON should work fine:

I’ve already disabled Browser archiving within the system settings.

Further I’ve included the following in /etc/cron.d/matomo.archive:

5 * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/matomo/console core:archive --url= > /dev/null

I’ve also tested (with correct populated data) from the documentation:

5 * * * * www-data /usr/bin/php /var/www/matomo/console core:archive --url= > /dev/null

Neither works and fetches data.

If I don’t manually test the CRON it won’t render reports anymore within the interface.
I’ve tried sudo apt-get install cron etc, but nothing really seems to work.

Anyone else experiencing this problem and managed to fix it?

Here’s my settings for one of the setups (if this matters :slight_smile: ):

Hi @rasmus_refyne,
Is there any available CRON log file somewhere?
Can you also check the Matomo error log file?
