thanx a lot.


how do you execute a script via crontab can you give me an example???

My collegue executated a script to show all the daily logs, everytime he execute that script with the crontab the file is created but remain empty.


when he execute the same  script manually he can see the file with all the content.

There should a cron log, where you can see whether those jobs are executed or not.  What OS ?
