I have another newbie question, but this is starting to irk me.
I have crontab functioning properly. 3 of the commands are working beautifully in crontab. I am a happy camper.
I have another set of commands that I run beautifully from the commands line. I even write out the commands from the crontab -l in the command line and they work perfectly. They don't work in crontab and I am forced to do the work myself. I have checked everything in the commands and everything is done properly. I am baffled. The commands I am having problems with are unzip and mv. I checked to make sure that I am launching the applications from the appropriate location and still nothing. I have the following;
1 21 * * * /usr/bin/unzip /mnt/logs/somewhere/SOMELOGone`date +\%m-\%d-\%Y`*
Why doesn't this work? It works perfectly in the command line. Why not in crontab? Am I missing something?
