I see a few posts about cron not working. It’s typical, because cron very often doesn’t work.
This is why I’d like to confirm that it’s working. I have no reason to suspect that it doesn’t work, except because cron very often doesn’t work.
When the /var/www/nextcloud/cron.php file is run, I don’t see any kind of message in any log indicating success. I don’t know what it does internally or how to confirm that it is indeed doing what it’s supposed to be doing. Does the cron.php script leave any kind of evidence that would indicate success?
