Or

  • Scheduled cron tasks are not being executed.

Cause

This is a bug with ID #PPPM-4560 which is planned to be fixed in future Plesk updates.

Resolution

  • If domain should not be suspended, allow cron tasks for subscription user by the following command:

    # /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/crontabmng allow user
