    When you go to the civicrm cron page does it show that it has run? Go to Administer -> System Settings - > Scheduled Jobs. Does the Last Run datetime reflect when you last expected the cron to have run? Does the View Log indicate success?

    Your cron appears to be running every minute. What jobs do you have enabled under Scheduled Jobs?

This may be the Joomla-specific bug documented in dev/joomla#6, where cron runs successfully but the mailing scheduler fails due to a permission failure.


Mine is working in joomla/civicrm, here is what I use for the cron job: wget -O - -q -t 1 'https://"my domain name"/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/bin/cron.php?name="my cron user name goes here"&pass="my cron user password goes here"&key="my key goes here"'

The " are there to help identify where you will fill in your specific info.

Make sure your joomla user, that you are using for cron has superuser rights in joomla.
