Parallels Plesk Cron Wget Error

28 Jul
We recently came across an issue when migrating a Plesk 9 system onto a new Plesk 11 server with scheduled tasks and the wget process.

One of our customer domains had a scheduled task similar to: wget -q -O /dev/null "" and the new Plesk 11 server generated an email error report stating: -: wget: command not found.

Plesk 10 & 11 restrict execution of scripts via cron task scheduler. To resolve this issue check out page 166 on parallels admin guide:

Alternatively run the commands via root within Plesk.
