The DirectAdmin task.queue is not being processed

1. Check for /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue
It should be deleted every minute.  If it exists, check it’s contents.  If there are more than just 1 or 2 lines, then the dataskq is not running.

2. Check /var/log/cron.
See if the dataskq is running every minute (logged every minute).  If not, try running

chmod 644 /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron
/sbin/service crond restart

3. Make sure crond is running (“cron” on FreeBSD):

ps ax | grep cron

4. Try restarting cron: /sbin/service crond restart.
Check /var/log/cron and /var/log/messages for possible problems with the /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron file .

If you dont have crond (rpm based systems) type:

yum -y install vixie-cron
service crond start
chkconfig crond on

5. If all of the above checkout but the task.queue is still not being processed, try running it manually:

/usr/local/directadmin/dataskq d
