SOLVED FreshRSS does not Sync Feeds anymore
Since a few days I have noticed none of my FreshRSS app automatically sync new feed items (configured every 20 min in the app) the last app update was two month ago so I have no idea what changed, in theory nothing, this started here on the 23 of August and since I have been forced to manually log in to each account and update the feeds manually, If I don't, the app simply stay at the last sync and does not automatically fetch new items.
Manual Sync appears in the log just fine, what I don't see anymore is the app doing this for each user automatically every 20 minutes like it used to do for years..
I'm not sure where to start to understand what's happening here...
Any of you stuck with all your feeds dated a few days ago ?
@rmdes can you check the app logs to see if the cron job runs?
You should see
==> Run actualize scriptin the logs every now and then.

I've not checked my install of this for ages, but just did so and it has a load of new items from today so I guess it's still ticking over OK
@nebulon none of my FreshRSS apps are doing this :
@rmdes Can you try
systemctl restart box. This should resync the cron jobs. Let's see if that helps . If it does, that seems like a bug in the box code somewhere. The actualize script is run every minute it seems.

I'm not seeing any error that might have caused this but happy to look elsewhere under your direction and export logs if necessary
@rmdes the jobs are triggered by a scheduler run via nodejs cron and we have seen this getting stuck in the past. So far I don't think there were any pointers how to fix that unfortunately.

@nebulon The base image contains its own cron no? Can you just point to that?
@robi the cron within the app container is not active in all apps. Additionally we have a cron feature from the platform, which is used in this case. That will run the jobs in their own container, instead of within the main app container. This essentially reduces the amount of active processes overall.
@nebulon Yeah it happened again for one on my FreshRSS container, no idea why, same solution applied and all is good now
All my freshRSS app work just great, but one...same version, nothing special, I don't see why it's fixed for 4 other freshRSS app but this one...
