Admin cron job WAS working before webhost upgraded a bit lost

I was using the method by "Mike T" to run a cron job on the admin side. ... s/22181225

It was working very well until my webhost made quite a bit changes.
They changed servers and eliminated any version of php less than 7.0.
What additional changes they made I do not know but when I run the cron job nothing happens.
When I attempt to run it by logging into the web server it shows me
What looks like it is trying to run this as a webpage versus a php script:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
<title>Page Not Found!</title>
<base href="" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="view/stylesheet/stylesheet.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="view/javascript/jquery/jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="view/javascript/jquery/ui/jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.min.js"></script>
<link type="text/css" href="view/javascript/jquery/ui/themes/ui-lightness/jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="view/javascript/jquery/tabs.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="view/javascript/jquery/superfish/js/superfish.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="view/javascript/common.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

Basically showing me the text of my admin homepage.

ANYONE here used this method of running a admin cron job, and saw the same issue? And if so what was the fix?

Thank you in advance,

I walked through the script and found my screw up. I hard coded a path! So my webhost changed it from /home/ to /home1/ and there my screw-up of hard coding came to bite me.
Sorry for anyone who I wasted their time.
