I've tried several methods of running a cron daily without success.

Methods thus far. One day at a time
php -q /home/USER/PATHTO/SITEROOT/index.php?ACT=24&id=25
/usr/bin/curl --user-agent cPanel-Cron
/usr/bin/curl --user-agent cPanel-Cron ''

Settings in cPanel
Minute Hour Day Month Weekday
0 7 * * *
So run everyday at 7:00 AM.

If I manually run the url, it takes about 5 seconds to process so I'm pretty sure that's not an issue. Is there something else I could try?

Thank you for contacting us about issues running a cron job. I looked at your cron script, and it looks to be coded correctly.

I recommend checking to see if the cron ran successfully in the logs.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
John-Paul B
