Cron error after upgrading server

Post by timmyd7777 » Fri Mar 04, 2022 4:43 pm

Hi Justin. I recently moved my shared hosting server to a new machine with more RAM, disk, etc. After moving, I get the following error message emailed to me by the cron daemon every 5 minutes. It's from a DadaMail cron job that you installed for me back in 2018. Here is the cron job:

/bin/curl --user-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;)" --silent --get --url ... l/_silent/

The response is:

<html><head><title>Error 404 - Not Found</title><head><body><h1>Error 404 - Not Found</h1><p>The document you are looking for may have been removed or re-named. Please contact the web site owner for further assistance.</p></body></html>

However, the underlying cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi script (and, as far as I can tell, everything else DadaMail-related) has been copied over to the new machine. Is there some reference to machine name buried in a script, somewhere, that needs to be updated? Let me know what to look for ... and if I can't figure out it out, let me know how I hire you to get this working again. :-)

Could be a few things - I'd first see if changing the URL from,

Code: Select all

Code: Select all
helps out.

If not, I wonder if your own site is blocking access to calling a URL on your own account.
