    Hi, I have a cronjob which I runs fine on debian wheezy as Full Cron using the system full paths. Testing from cli the following command executes fine:

    /usr/bin/php -q /var/www/clients/client3/web32/web/console core:archive --url=

    Now I want to run the cron job as Chrooted but in this case the mysqli extension is missing. The following command from cli fails:

    /usr/bin/php -q /web/console core:archive --url=

    The server has mysqli extension loaded. From any site if I execute the following in a php file it returns true:

    echo extension_loaded('mysqli');

    Any help on this appreciated as I would like the cronjobs to be Chrooted for security.

    Try installling mysql in the chroot environment.
