Cron not running wget

I am trying to get this to work and have tried in cpanel in a sub account and it didnt run
and then tried logging in to ssh and changing the root cron, and it didnt run.

/usr/local/bin/wget http://domain.com/processorders/processing8356
for some reason I dont receive the email that the script is meant to send. Wierd.
Anyone got any suggestions I could try.

maybe you have an error in your cron job that is not letting it run.

debug it line by line.
have it run one line of the script, check if that works, then the next.

It might be that the user that is running the cronjob does not have the right to use wget?

Cron had stopped on the server, so they needed to restart it, and they gave a good suggestion to alternate code. thanks
