For developing courses on this machine only I install the latest moodle (3.4 as of November 2017).
No problem with that.
As advised there is a cron job under /etc/cron.d The long time between launches is acceptable this not a production server.
24 */6 * * * apache /var/www/html/moodle-pckurse/admin/cli/cron.php > /dev/null
Which is launched on time.
Before I added 'sending output to nirvana' there was a message in /var/messages
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/share/httpd/.esmtp_queue’: Permission denied
unable to create queue dir /usr/share/httpd/.esmtp_queue
The reason why the message is logged is obvious as for security there is SELinux on the fedora box and the httpd-directories are owned by root.
So just to know what would the E-Mail tell me other than the running of the cron job? The job ran and terminated successfully as logged in the cron.log
The other way round. Is there a way to provided a setting that these E-Mails should be delivered to an other linux user.
Some information to understand this minor discomfort would be appreciated.
