    I see entries like this in /var/log/cron but /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log and /root/cron.log are empty. How can I verify that this is working properly?

    Only errors were logged to cron.log. So if the log is empty, then there are no errors and the system works properly.

    So if
    /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log is empty ...crons entered in the ispconfig admin for a domain or subdomain are working?

    How do I configure so I get an email when a cron is done?

    and in the ispconfig I setup a cron like this

    does that look right in order for it to run every 2 hours every day starting at 5am and ending at 7pm?

    Reason for asking is that I see entries every two hours in the /var/log/cron but access.log of site only shows one hit

    insight much appreciated

    The cron.log file is only for the ispconfig cron and not for cronjobs that you created in ispconfig. the user crons are logged in the syslog file of your server. The above cronjob looks right
