/bin/phpbbcli.php cron:runcronjob. To debug the issue I tried to send a CC of every email being sent by the forum to our development address so we could monitor the issue.
I can resolve the issue temporarily by deleting the
/cache/production/folder or more specifically to remove
queue.php.lockuntil it happens again. These two files can't be deleted via the default 'clear cache' function that the forum provides in the admin or via the terminal /ssh with normal "www-data" (apache) user rights. But once the files are removed everything works normal again.
Some things I don't understand and I hope someone can help me with:
- Despite I added myself as a CC for every email that the forum sends out I am not experiencing the same issue, even for the specific messages that people say they get every x minutes send by the cronjob. I am only getting the the notification message once. Any idea why?
- Is queue.php.lock part of / created by phpbb? If not this could mean another server process is causing issues which prevents phpbb from updating the que?
- Should the queue.php file be removed when you use the clear cache option in the admin?
