Hi All, I’m running v5.0.44-C37 in a docker container.
I just wanted to get a definitive idea - is cron set up and operational in the v5 docker container? Has anyone set up the container to do this or is this feature coming soon?
I’ve attempted a number of different times to get a simple recurring invoice to generate and it doesn’t happen. In the past simply adding a recurring invoice would lock me out of v5 - and now that doesn’t happen now, so I’m just trying to get something to generate.
Some of the basic things I’ve done:
1 - Check the crontab - nothing is setup in any of the directories that I can see. So, I setup a cron to run based on this self-hosted (but non-docker) guide. My crontab looks like this:
1a - I checked that crond was running (albeit as root for now):
2 - Watching the cronlog, I setup a recurring invoice to run in the past (as been suggested elsewhere). That suggestion was for V4 - so not telling if that would do anything here. When the next minute arrives, something happens and is logged - even see a reference to recurring invoices:
3 - There is no invoice generated, no email, however. No sign that InvoiceNinja recognized a new invoice needed to be created. Also, the recurring invoice is still sitting there (I had it set only to fire once, so I imagine that should be gone):
4 - I did a php artisan optimize - created a new recurring invoice and started it. Still nothing.
5 - I looked at the laravel.log and found no new entries.
So, no invoice and I’m not sure I even expect it to work at this point. I don’t see any documentation referencing corn in a docker container, nor does anyone seem to be specifically talking about this or whether it is even meant to work right now. I’d just love to know where this stands.
6 - Also interesting - with a recurring invoice - when I click “View PDF,” I get an error:
The PDF system is otherwise working for me.
7 - And another thing - The one recurring invoice I have set to “Start” is sitting “Pending”. When I use the menu to set it to “Stop,” the recurring invoice continues to say “Pending.” Highly unusual. Take a look here (animated gif).
