ISPConfig not updating server

    I'm running ISPConfig version with Debian Squeeze and apache2 from how to installation.

    I noticed today my ISPConfig installation has stopped updating my Debian server when it wouldn't create a new database. The records are there in ISPConfig but no database on the server.

    I took out a website on ISPConfig and under /var/www/clients/client#/ the original web# was still there and when I put the website back in ISPConfig add a new web# on it's own system but there was no change on the server.

    I recycled the server but still not working.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this???

    crontab -e

    Thanks for the help Till.

    I've must have done something to ISPConfig's root crontab.

    I made an entry to cron to backup a website but nothing happened. I looked at the root crontab entry (but I don't remember what it was, only that ISPConfig was trying to use it). I deleted the cron backup request from ISPConfig and looked again at crontab and the entry was gone. At that time I recreated a crontab myself (crontab -u root filexxx) and made my own entry.

    Somehow I must have gotten rid of the root crontab that ISPConfig needed to run the job queue.

    So is this entry that's suppose to be in crontab for root:

    * * * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/ > /dev/null >> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log ???

    As I've said it's no longer there. Should I edit crontab and add this entry? Can I use root crontab for my backups along with what ISPConfig needs it for?

    Great, thanks again for your help.

    I've added the line and jobs are moving out of the job queue again, but I don't have a line for cron_daily? I don't have any user defined ISPConfig cron jobs for any site.

    Do I need another line in root crontab for cron_daily?
