i'm a complete novice at unix and am working my way through scheduling a scheduled task using crontab. i've created a .sh file that calls a .sql file that inserts one record into a database. if i run the .sh file using sh myfile.sh it works as expected. I added an entry to my crontab file to run the file but keep getting a permission denied error. looking at my crontab file I can see other entries there already, so I know the user i have has permissions.
Please use full paths to all executables, in crontab as well as in the called script.
Next, either use sh /path/to/myfile.sh or, if you don't want to use the "sh ..." method, issue "chmod +x /path/to/myfile.sh"
