I'm trying to run my cron manually by visiting mysite.com/cron.php
Normally when I do this (with other drupal sites of mine), I can access cron.php and once cron is run I see I blank page (mysite.com/cron.php). I then navigate back to my site by typing the site url into my browser.
What is happening here is I am going to mysite.com/cron.php and then after a few seconds being redirected to the page within my site that I accessed it from (say I typed in 'mysite.com/cron.php' while I had mysite.com/news loaded, I would be kicked back to mysite.com/news)
When I check the logs, I get the following message:
Cron run exceeded the time limit and was aborted.
Using 5.1 on a site I upgraded from 4.7.3
