execv("/bin/bash") failed system error: No such file or directory

Hi guys,

I have a new server, upgraded to php 5.3 so wordpress would work.

Using plesk, 10.2, 64 bit system 4 gigs of ram,

I'm trying to set up a corn tab with the following,

php -q /var/www/vhosts/

When I get the e-mail I get the following error,

execv("/bin/bash") failed
system error: No such file or directory

Godaddy will not help so I'm all alone here,

Is there a way to fix this?


Hi guys, I found one article,

To resolve the issue, set one of the valid shell options for the domain system user.

I'm not sure how to set up the valid shell options for the domain system user

Uh, did you try doing what the link suggested?

You may check this in Control Panel by navigating the following path:
Websites&Domains > Web Hosting Settings: Access to the server over SSH
