Drupal Cron Bug

Drupal Cron Bug
We recently had some hosting issues. Now cron is not running for our site at all. Perhaps we just need cron setup on the server, perhaps something has to be edited for our Drupal installation.

Please fix.

Bug details:
– On …/admin/reports/status it says “Cron has not run. For more information, see the online handbook entry for configuring cron jobs. You can run cron manually.”
– When “run cron manually” is clicked it will show a whole page of errors like this:
“Warning: MySQL server has gone away query: INSERT INTO watchdog (uid, type, message, variables, severity, link, location, referer, hostname, timestamp) VALUES (1, ‘php’, ‘%message in %file on line %line.’, ‘a:4:{s:6:\”%error\”;s:12:\”user warning\”;s:8:\”%message\”;s:443:\”MySQL server has gone away\nquery: INSERT INTO watchdog\n (uid, type, message, variables, severity, link, location, referer, hostname, timestamp)\n VALUES\n (1, 'boost', 'Expired stale files from static page cache.', 'a:0:{}', 5, '', '…/admin/reports/status/run-cron', '…/admin/reports/status', '', 1269617930)\”;s:5:\”%file\”;s:55:\”…/modules/dblog/dblog.module\”;s:5:\”%line\”;i:144;}’, 3, ”, ‘… in …/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 128″
(The website URL has been removed from the error message.)
– When I click “run cron manually” again it simply says “Cron run failed.”

I’m hoping this is some very minor configuration issue. After this issue, we have several more bugs and design issues that we’ll need help with.
