  • How do I change the "next time" a cronjob runs?

    Instead of "springing forward" 1hr in our time change today, my server decided to go to April, 2029. I run 3 different vB forums, 3.6.8, 3.7.4, 3.8.4

    All of the scheduled tasks in admin CP show the "next time" they'll be run, is in 2029 ! (see link for screenshot)

    How do I change this? I want to change it to say, tomorrow's date, but don't know where it's stored!

    Ok, apparently going into AdminCP > Scheduled Tasks then just clicking "edit" each task then save, without changing anything on the task form, will reset the "Next time" date to whenever it should run beyond the current time. So since I've reset my server time to the correct time, each "next time" is showing correctly now. Hopefully it all runs ok!! (most are set to 3am or 4am so I wont' know until I wake up).

    It would still be nice to know where this "Next time" time/date is stored!

      This is stored in the table 'cron'. The next run is stored as a timestamp in 'nextrun'.
      No private support, only PM me when I ask for it. Support in the forums only.
