Yeah I have there is nothing logged in the backend log, are user jobs
executed on the frontend or the backend? not that it matters for my setup
I'm currently running a combined FE/BE but I'm just curious I've now
turned on --verbose jobqueue on the mythbackend to see if there is any
further information there is there any other debugging I should enable?
