clients dirs not created
I'm using ispconfig on Ubuntu ..

All worked well , but now I noticed when I create a new client or website , the dirs and vhosts are not created anymore .. it used to work :(

Any idea how to fix this?

There are no directories created when you create a client, so this part is ok. The directories are created when you create a website, if this does not work anymore then take a look at the debugging instructions in the faq:

hmmm somehow .. I fixed it (???)

It seemed the jobque was stacked with jobs and wans't processed ..

I had a custom cronjob, but I disabled that
restarted cron
restarted ispconfig server

and now suddenly the jobque is empty and everything work now .. (???)

Most likely the cron daemon was stopped then and te restart fixed it. A custom cronjob can not cause this and ispconfig is no daemon, so it cant be restarted.

This is a shell script that gets executed once a minute by cron. If cron is stopped, then this script gets not executed and the jobqueue is not processed.

So when cron doesn't execute the ...

then something is going wrong with cron? And how do I check that?

Check the /var/log/syslog file for errors.
