I can telnet into my sever and issue the following command.
cp usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/register/cdata.txt usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/`date +'%m%d%y'`cdata
The file cdate.txt will be copied correctly adding the date to the file and leaving off the extension.
When I put the same command in the cronfile, the file is copied
but does not have the date added to the name of the file.
How can I solve this problem?
