Why is the task.queue not being processed?

check for /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue
It should be deleted every minute. If it exists, check it’s contents. If there are more than just 1 or 2 lines, then the dataskq is not running.

check /var/log/cron. See if the dataskq is running every minute (logged every minute). If not, try running

chmod 644 /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron
/sbin/service crond restart

make sure crond is running :
ps ax | grep cron

try restarting cron:
/sbin/service crond restart
Check /var/log/cron and /var/log/messages for possible problems with the /etc/cron.d/directadmin_cron file (/etc/crontab on FreeBSD).

If all of the above checkout but the task.queue is still not being processed, try running it manually:

/usr/local/directadmin/dataskq d
