Cronjob killed - how to resume sending?

    Hey there! About 5 minutes after starting to send 12k emails around, I got an email from my host with the following content:

    setlock: fatal: unable to lock /tmp/cronlock.3790819758.204300: temporary failure

    5 minutes after that, I got the same email, and 5 minutes after that, I got the message:

    sh: line 1:  9830 Killed  php /<domain>/sendy/scheduled.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    So while looking into all this, I figured out that the cron job I setup in my hosting interface had a checkbox for 'use locking' which prevents running multiple instances of the same job at once. I disabled that, re-saved the cron job, but I fear the 'lock' and 'kill' broke the process and emails stopped being sent. Currently, I'm seeing Sendy send maybe 3 emails every 5 minutes... With that rate, I'll be done sending this batch of emails in four weeks....

    What can I do?

    Sendy will resume sending where it left off.

    However the campaign sending so slowly may be caused by several factors, I suggest reading this tip to learn more →
