Some of you may have experienced your cron jobs failing to execute this evening (Sunday) during 7:00pm to 10:00pm EST. The problem has been corrected and everything should be back to normal.
Web Based Cron
The default setup on WebBasedCron is to send you a failure notification email for every 5 times your cron job fails. Up to today, this number was hard coded and users who’s cron jobs were prone to failing would receive large amounts of email notifications. We can now change this number to whatever you like, the minimum is still 5, but if your cron job fails often we would be more than happy to increase this number. Just open a support ticket and we’ll change it for you.
