April 20th, 2009, 07:14 AM

The root user of my newley setup server is sending me the following email. I haven't touched /etc/cron.d/php5, does anyone know why I am getting these errors?

Subject: Cron <root@example.com> [ -d /var/lib/php5 ] && find /var/lib/php5/ -type f -cmin +$(/usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime) -print0 | xargs -r -0 r

Message body: find: invalid argument `+' to `-cmin'

$ cat /etc/cron.d/php5

# /etc/cron.d/php5: crontab fragment for php5
# This purges session files older than X, where X is defined in seconds
# as the largest value of session.gc_maxlifetime from all your php.ini
# files, or 24 minutes if not defined. See /usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime

# Look for and purge old sessions every 30 minutes
09,39 * * * * root [ -d /var/lib/php5 ] && find /var/lib/php5/ -type f -cmin +$(/usr/lib/php5/maxlifetime) -print0 | xargs -r -0 rm

I think I was getting this error because my VPS did not have enough memory.

I upgraded my hosting plan and have not received any errors since.
