Thank you for your question rohini@copperpix.com!

Sorry to hear about the problem with the cron job error. If you have not already, please see the following links on how cron jobs work on our server.

301: How to run a cron job

Intensive cron jobs or scheduled tasks

It looks like when the command is ran the system is seeing 49 as a command and not the time. You will want to check your cron tab to make sure it's set up correctly.

Best Regards,
