I recently discovered my product stock alert e-mails aren't being sent. When I checked the cron_schedule table in my DB, I see the following:
Which basically tells me there hasn't been any execution of this job since november 2014. Since this is a (fairly large) live site, I'd like to double check a few things. Would it be safe for me to change the following:
from config.xml in this path: app\code\core\Mage\ProductAlert\etc
<jobs> <catalog_product_alert> <run> <model>productalert/observer::process</model> </run> </catalog_product_alert> </jobs>
<jobs> <catalog_product_alert> <schedule> <cron_expr>* * * * *</cron_expr> </schedule> <run> <model>productalert/observer::process</model> </run> </catalog_product_alert>
Since there have been thousands of product stock alert subscribers since that date.. I'm not quite sure if it is safe to do so.
EDIT: As for right now I'm starting to wonder if this is in fact the problem. I've checked the
product_alert_stock table and it tells me the last e-mail was sent on june 7th, which is also not correct but maybe this particular cron catalog_product_alert is no longer used for this execution. Does anybody know wether this is true or not?
