Lucee 5.0 – (current version) has a bug in scheduled tasks that seems to affect both Windows and Linux servers.

You can work around this issue using a cron job by way of curl.

On Windows you can use the Windows Task Scheduler and curl. Curl can be downloaded from

    Hey Chris,
    I just tried this with the latest and it works perfectly. Is there any circumstance which I might have forgotten?
    The JIRA Issue LDEV-897 is for Lucee which is quite an old one.

      I haven’t dug into it that far Gert. There’s active updates on this issue even though its old. Other people’s are broken like me, while people trying to recreate it seems to work fine.
