I created a cron job and set it up to run every 1 minute, but it just runs every 2 minutes instead. I have NO idea what is going on?

Any hint on why the cron task is executed every 2 minutes rather than every minute ?

Check your system cron. Make sure it is set * * * * * to run every minute. On linux you can run the command crontab -l to list all the cron for that user.

  • its every minute.. i jsut have no idea why magento is not firing the cron task.. i ended creating a cron job directly on the server that excute a magento url ! i know its not the right way, but its work around
