I have magento installed in a cloud server and folder public_html/. Some days ago because the permissions of the files was a messed up I used Magento's instruction's to set permissions from the beginning:

find . -type f -exec chmod 400 {} +
find . -type d -exec chmod 500 {} +
find var/ -type f -exec chmod 600 {} +
find media/ -type f -exec chmod 600 {} +
find var/ -type d -exec chmod 700 {} +
find media/ -type d -exec chmod 700 {} +

I've done this logged in with ssh with root user. Site is working but all magento cron jobs are not.

Server is using Nginx as:


Magento is installed with:


All files and subfolders now in public_html/ are:

owner:www-data & group:wpaper

Both user wpaper and user www-data are in the same groups. Groups are wpaper and www-data. What am I doing wrong please?
