Cron jobs not getting run
When I create new cron jobs (and set them as active), they are put in /etc/cron.d/ispc_chrooted_web1




*/2    *      *      *      *      web1    /etc/cron.d/job1
*      *      *      *      *      web1    /etc/cron.d/job2

1) Where in ISPConfig do I specify what this MAILTO will be set to?

2) These jobs aren't getting run. However if I manually add them to the root users 'crontab -e' file they get run fine. Why wouldn't they be getting run here?

1) The amilto cant be set in ispconfig.
2) You run a chrooted cronjob and the script that you try to execute is not in the chroot.

I see, thanks. So how do I give that user the access it needs?

Do I just need to give the web1 user access to execute those files?

It looks like the cron isn't even running at all, so I have a feeling it's not a permissions issue yet.
I modified /etc/cron.d/ispc_chrooted_web1 to the following and it still doesn't run:



*      *      *      *      *      root    /etc/cron.d/send_it  > dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log

What is it that is supposed to run this ispc_chrooted_web1 file? How else can I narrow this down?
