    Can someone please help me with this strange problem? We recently did a minor update on our ISPconfig 3. After the update, we found that anything we modified or newly added in ISPconfig, such as, add new email account, create a new DNS record, change user's email password or enable an vacation message etc. It will take at least 1 hour or hours to apply the changes.

    Does anyone has or had the same problem before? Please help!

    Thank you!

    This might be caused by wrong crontab settings or by a lock file that has not been removed correctly. Please post the output of:

    crontab -l


    ls -la /usr/local/ispconfig/server/temp/

    Thank you Till!

    Here is "crontab -l"
    * * * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/ > /dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log
    30 00 * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/ > /dev/null 2>> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log

    Here is "ls -la /usr/local/ispconfig/server/temp/" result,
    drwxr-x--- 2 ispconfig ispconfig 4096 2012-07-26 09:42 .
    drwxr-x--- 13 ispconfig ispconfig 4096 2012-06-11 04:31 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2012-07-26 09:30 .ispconfig_lock

    This is what I have tried.

    1. I have created an new email account before delete ".ispconfig_lock" file, then right away, I tried to login to the webmail using this new email account. It failed

    2. I deleted ".ispconfig_lock", tried right away to login via the webmail. It works

    3. I tried to create another email account, then tried to login via the webmail. It failed again.

    any idea? thank you in advance!!!
