Drupal Cron Getting Stuck

I’ve just run into the drupal cron problem again  

Cron fails and the error log says

"Attempting to re-run cron while it is already running."


  • delete from variable where name=’cron_semaphore’;
  • clear caches
  • run cron from the web page

That seems to do the trick.

Now cron runs OK fom drush or web.
