I created a file named "dbrun.sh":
mysql -u zooph -ppass123 -h m.example.com zooph_db < /usr/home/zooph/cron/cron.sql > /dev/null
touch /usr/home/zooph/cron/cron.txt

Open in new window


When I run the file like this the MySQL queries in the MySQL get exicuted:
sh dbrun.sh

Open in new window

However when the crontab does NOT run the SQL dump:
*/1 * * * * sh /usr/home/zooph/cron/dbrun.sh

Open in new window

The "touch" command works but not the MySQL dump.

possibly because the mysql is not in the path?
try to modify dbrun.sh so that you specify the full path name ...

If you want something to run every minute, just use * versus */1
But as angelIII pointed out the location of mysql might not be in the path and
/bin/sh instead of sh or add to the top of your script:
#!/bin/sh
and change mode of the file to 755.

/usr/bin/mysql
/usr/local/bin/mysql should be used instead of the mysql you have.
