I added this line to crontab on our server
*/5 * * * * /home/users/mydomain/www/cron.sh >> /home/users/mydomain/www/var/log/cron.log 2>&1
but Aoe_Scheduler said last cron success was few month ago
What should I do to make cron is working?

cron.sh by Magento has some issues. It spawns two processes, basically
php cron.php -mdefault and
php cron.php -malways, while STDERR is redirected to
/dev/null (i.e. any error messages are swallowed).
So it is safer to set up the cron like this:
*/5 * * * * php /home/users/mydomain/www/cron.php -mdefault >> /home/users/mydomain/www/var/log/cron.log 2>&1 */5 * * * * php /home/users/mydomain/www/cron.php -malways >> /home/users/mydomain/www/var/log/cron.log 2>&1
However, you said you have
Aoe_Scheduler installed. This extension comes with a drop in replacement for
cron.sh that enables additional features in the cron management like process monitoring. The file is
scheduler_cron.sh and you find instructions how to set it up in the "Scheduler" menu of the Magento admin panel (assuming you have version 1.x, or at least 0.4 of the extension - if not, update, it's worth it!)
