Newbie Problems with cron
Posted on 2005-05-09
Im trying to set up a simple cron job to test and learn the ropes.
I have a test executable in the / directory called test. Its a script. The contents are:
In order to test it, I log in as root. And type the following in crontab -e:
20 * * * * /test
Which is I assume, run the command test in the / directory on the 20th (or whatever I use) minute of each hour.
The script works when executed outside the cron job, so Im confused why the cron job isnt doing it.
Any help will be appreciated.
