    Hello

    I have been using litespeed since about an year without any problem.
    Recently I moved my whmcs domain to the litespeed powered server, and found that the cron job is getting timed out.

    There is a cron job which executes "cron.php" file every day.

    When I executed manually, after several seconds it says

    "503 Service Unavalilable"

    Is it related to php.ini max_exe_ time ?

    how are you running the cron?

    I use cPanel.
    I can see the cron at
    /var/spool/cron

    It is timing out, so I tried manually opening the cron php file thru browser.

    Getting 503 error usually means that your PHP binary may crashed for some reason. please check error_log and stderr.log for any hint.

    Once again I did it.
    It returned 503 Service Unavailable error

    error_log is empty, however

    Can you post the command line that your cron is running?
