Codeigniter CLI does not log to database

Hey Guys,

I tried asking this question on StackOverflow, but I think people do not have the correct knowledge to help me out. At least the one answer I got was not what I was looking for... So here goes.

I have the following function which updates the status of my vacancies (based on dates) and logs the amount of vacancies that got a change, it looks like this:

PHP Code:
    //Function used to check the statusses of every vacancy and update it accordingly
        function checkVacanciesStatusses()
            // this function can only be called from the command line
            if (!$this->input->is_cli_request()) {
                echo "Access is only allowed from the command line";
            $affected1 $this->vacancies_model->updateToStatus1();
            $affected2 $this->vacancies_model->updateToStatus2();

This is put in a cronjob to be executed every 30minutes, like so:

    */30 * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/index.php cli/cron checkVacanciesStatusses >/dev/null 2>&1

The code for the createCronLog in my logmanager looks like this:

PHP Code:
class LogManager {
protected $CI;
// We'll use a constructor, as you can't directly call a function
        // from a property definition.
        public function __construct()
            // Assign the CodeIgniter super-object
            $this->CI =& get_instance();
         * Creates an entry in the log_cron table
         * @param string $method            the name of the method executed
         * @param array  $amount_updated    the amount of rows updated during the method the cron logged for
         * @return int                      row id
        public function createCronLog($method$amount_updated)
            //Create a LOG entry
            $entity = new stdClass();
            $entity->created_at date('Y-m-d H:i:s');
            $entity->hostname gethostname();
            $entity->pid getmypid();
            $entity->user get_current_user();
            $entity->uri $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
            $entity->method $method;
            $entity->amount_updated $amount_updated;
return $this->CI->logCron_model->add($entity);

The thing which I cannot wrap my head around is that the vacancy updates (so the model calls) work perfectly. But the logging does not work.

When I comment the if clause which checks if it is a cli_request, and I manually browse to the function, the vacancies gets updated AND the logging works!

What is happening? 
It is not giving any errors or whatsoever, it just works when executed manually.
