comment formatting of cron.allow and/or does cron need to be restarted
Thanks again, I have now actually removed the cron.allow I had previously created and crontab still runs the task for www-data, affirming what you write under #3 regarding probably not needing cron.allow on Debian

comment formatting of cron.allow and/or does cron need to be restarted
I'm an idiot, it was a permissions problem within the script that was running. Therefore I had actually properly setup the crontab for www-data. Nevertheless I believe this question might be of value and will leave it stand.

comment formatting of cron.allow and/or does cron need to be restarted
1) specifying (#!)/usr/bin/php would be superfluous I already begin my script that way and it runs from the command line and furthermore .... 2) I can run the task from root's crontab .... this seems to suggest that I have not properly setup the ability (via cron.allow?) for www-data to run it's own crontab
