Got a problem.
I created a cron job via cPanel and after what deleted it, but it didn't stop working.
Anyone knows how to stop my crons?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
If your looking to stop cron jobs all together (I believe this can be done in WHM as well):
You may need to reload crond (although cPanel should have done that itself)
Check out its usage:
If that didn't fix it check if it's running:
And then try to kill it:
If all fails, you may want to try restarting the server and see if that fixes it.
Just in case the crontab entry wasn't actually removed:
Then put a # at the start of the line you want stopped.
Check the corresponding user cron manually via shell, (assuming u have root)
and remove the corresponding cron entry. Or simply null the user crontab and restart crond,
