Drupal 7

HOW TO FIX: "Attempting to re-run cron while it is already running."

After spending hours on different forums to find the solution to this problem, I was finally able to work through it using this page (drupal.org/node/360836). The difference between that article and this is that I changed the word 'variable' to 'dr_variable' to match my SQL table names.


1. Go into the PHPMyAdmin dashboard and navigated to the database I wanted to clear.


2. Click on SQL tab and entered the following:

SELECT * FROM dr_variable WHERE name like "cron%"


3. Disabled all non-core modules.
