Check your paths, check permissions, try to run the command from the console minus the "> /dev/null" and see if it gives you an error.

The script from command line works without any problem.
> /dev/null works fine for all other cronjobs .
I'm going mad , which could be the problem ?

cron wont like the > as an output direction, you don't need it anyway ...
*/5 * * * * php /usr/local/script/myscript.php /dev/null
That will output the result to /dev/null

In CPanel the default path is already
/usr/bin/ so you just need to complete it and doing what sir_panels says should work.
