Nextcloud version (eg, 18.0.2): 18.0.4 (stable at this moment)
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Debian Stretch 9.12

PHP version (eg, 7.1): PHP 7.4.6
The issue you are facing:
I set up cron following the docs (and others cron doc/tuto I found) but it seems it’s not even called once
crontab -u www-data -e and add the cron
now I have this (
crontab -u www-data -l):
# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron. # # Each task to run has to be defined through a single line # indicating with different fields when the task will be run # and what command to run for the task # # To define the time you can provide concrete values for # minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon), # and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').# # Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system # daemon's notion of time and timezones. # # Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through # email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected). # # For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts # at 5 a.m every week with: # 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/ # # For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8) # # m h dom mon dow command MAILTO=mymail */5 * * * * www-data /usr/bin/php7.4 -f /var/www/html/nextcloud/cron.php >> /var/log/cron.log
If I understood what i read, it should run the cron.php with www-data user.
but the log file I added isn’t even created.
I laso tried the following crontab line
*/5 * * * * php -f /var/www/html/nextcloud/cron.php >> /var/log/cron.log
but no result either
For now I came back to ajax, but I’d like to set up the Cron to not load it every page load.
Steps to replicate it:
- set up cron following the docs (see the crontab above)
- wait for the cron
- wait again…
The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:
not relevant, I didn’t have an error for the last hour I try to set up the cron.
I had error on Groupfolders rights, but as said, not relevant with the cron not running.

I only have the above error
i have that from the begining and never took the time to take a look at this one.
I know the cron problem came a lot but none of the thread I read helped me.
I really don’t see where my problem is.
My nextcloud folder is owned by www-data:www-data
my crontab is set for www-data and target the cron.php file.
