Files listed in bold under SSH in Linux
Posted on 2011-04-30
I have a script on my CentOS 5.5 server. I am not a Linux admin, so this questions is likely very basic.
I actually have two CentOS servers that are almost identical. I set up a script on one many months ago and it lives in the /user/local/testing directory. When I do an ls the script dumpem.sh is displayed in bold with an * next to it. I put the same script in the same location on the other server and when I ls there it shows up just a plain old file name with no bold and no *.
The script runs fine manually from either server. However, on the server that does not display it as bold the script will not run when called from crontab. On the server where it is listed in bold the crontab runs it fine.
I can't remember what I did on the original server to get it to run, but I am assuming it has something do to with security.
Please help a newbie Linux guy.
