I’ve just set up the cron in Magento for the first time and the cron is running but produces a fatal error. This is what comes through in my email. I’ve already checked to make sure PDO_Mysql is installed and it is so that leaves me stumped. Any help appreciated

I suppose cron.php is run with php cli, and it might be have different php.ini configuration file. Please contact your host support to make sure that all required php extensions are available in php cli mode as well
