Hi, I am having a couple issues regarding transactional emails.
First, my edition is 1.9.3 and I have setup the cron job as
* * * * * bin/sh /home/admin/public_html/cron.sh > /home/admin/public_html/var/log/cron.sh.log
I have also tried using php and cron.php. The emails are still piling up in queue. Pulling the log file and it is completely empty. Second, I tried bypassing the queue and creating a small plugin to extend the core. That didn't work. Rolled the system back and now I am receiving the error - Fatal error: Class 'Mage_Core_Model_Template' not found in /home/admin/public_html/includes/src/Mage_Core_Model_Email_Template_Abstract.php on line 35.
At this point, I am at a loss as to what broke and how to fix it. Any ideas?
