I have had a cron job running for Drupal 6 successfully for many months. It suddenly stopped working 2 days ago, sending me the following error every time it tried to run: [ curl: (7) couldn't connect to host ]. The old, previously working job was [ curl -A 'Mozilla/5.0' -sS ]. I can't even run cron manually from Drupal anymore! What should I change to make it work again?

Hello Annaru,

Apologies for the problems with the cron. I reviewed the issue (as it was puzzling to us as well), and at the behest of the T2c tech who reviewed the issue with me, I have created a support ticket for follow-up with the issue. You will see a follow up on the issue by our T2c techs from live support shortly.

In terms of general information you may be interested in some documentation from Drupal on Cron jobs:

Cron jobs with Drupal
Configuring cron jobs with Drupal

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
