Can’t update Cron Jobs from Cpanel

Cpanel logs shows the following error while updating cron from cpanel.

tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log

Error message

cron/tmp.XXXXctNJVe: Permission denied

Cause of the issue

The /usr/bin/crontab binary was not setuid so it was unable to write to cron/tmp

Solution to this problem

chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab
