Quite often when I'm attempting to create a CRON job I'll mess up along the way and the job will fail to run.
Typically I'd check my logs and see where I went wrong, put the missing semicolon back, and continue on my way, but when it comes to cron jobs Magento rarely gives you any information of substance.
messages field is null in the
cron_jobs table, no messages are left in the Php error logs, none in the magento exceptions, none in cron.log, and none anywhere else I can think of to check, but the job still gets an "error" status.
Am I just not looking in the correct place for these errors or is there some way to make the cron log them somewhere?
