Crontab not executing after migrating to new server

    I have migrated my sites from an old server running Plesk to a new server that's also running Plesk and the one crontab I had defined stopped executing. I may have an ideea why: when I look at the crontab of the given site, I see that the crontab is running under the user named 'woodprof', however when I look at Server -> Scheduled tasks I don't see this user.

    Any hints highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to look at Domains > [domain] > Crontab. Server > Scheduled Tasks only shows crontabs of 'other' system users. Check /var/log/cron* for error messages.

    The tasks appear in the per domain crontab ( Domains > [domain] > Crontab ) and the log doesn't show anything suspicious. But they're still not executing. :(
