Several users report the same issue
It seems this issue appeared since version 4.7.1+

When using the cron to archive reports, new events are not reflected in the numbers.
If I change the settings to allow archive via browser, all the number update as they should.

I’ve setup cron to run the core:archive and have an error log setup to make sure everything is working properly. The cron job is setup under the www-data user as follows:

*/15 * * * * php /var/www/html/URL/console core:archive --matomo-domain=URL > /home/USER/MatomoErrors/matomo-archive-errors.log
I have it running every 15 minutes as I’m trouble shooting the issue.

The log file outputs the following:

It acts as if there is just nothing to archive??? I’m so stuck. Everything seems to be working perfect otherwise. I’ve checked all permissions on files and folders, my system check is all clear, and I just don’t know what else could be causing the issue.

We’re experience the exact same issue with Matomo version 4.8.0. When we change “Archive reports when viewed from the browser” to yes then all stats are updated nicely, when we change it to no and use the cronjob below, nothing happens.

Site ID 4 is the site for which reports should be generated.

Stefan Giehl:
So for some reason the (possibly empty) archive that was created before is considered as “usable”. That means Matomo has marked it as finished, which actually should never be the case for yesterday or today. Which timezones are you using for the site in Matomo and on your server?

The following settings are configured on the website and the server:

Experiencing the same thing. Since using to 4.8.0. We have freshly installed a new matomo server wanted to use the "Archive reports when viewed from the browser” to “No” and we set the cron to run every 30 minutes.

It keeps saying exactly what the user above me says, specifically this part “Processed 0 archives” :

This issue has been mentioned on Matomo forums. There might be relevant details there:

https://forum.matomo.org/t/cron-archive-runs-no-error-but-does-not-update-numbers-in-report/44677/12

@creopard commented on October 25th 2022

Same issue here.
Setting up a cron in cPanel it will execute successfully but with the same log results as already posted by @heurteph-ei
and the report numbers won't update.

However, executing the cron command (like php /var/www/html/URL/console core:archive --matomo-domain=URL > /home/USER/MatomoErrors/matomo-archive-errors.log) in a real shell window, the numbers will update.

Someone in the forum mentioned that

the ENV var was not properly set

But what variables are expected here and can they be added to the execution command for the cron?

@creopard commented on October 25th 2022

As a workaround I'm now using wget for the cronjob to get the archiving update done:

Example:
wget -O /home/public_html/matomo-archive-output.log 'https://www.example.com/path-to-matomo/misc/cron/archive.php?token_auth=TOKENID_AS_SET_IN_ADMIN_SECTION' &> /dev/null

Just set your domain, paths and the token_auth-id to your needs and wget will then generate the matomo-archive-output.log file.
(The command &> /dev/null will prevent wget sending you an email every time it got executed)

Nevertheless, it would be great to have the "native" php command working again in the crontab...

@heurteph-ei commented on October 25th 2022

@tsteur @sgiehl any analyze?

What makes me wonder is this line in both logs:

Archiving was last executed without error 9 Stunden [hours] 39 Minuten [minutes] ago.

Shouldn't that be a different time each time?
