I'm just not being able to run a simple cron job. Here is my crontab file:
As you can see, I have added the path variable as suggested elsewhere. There is a newline at the end. The commandCode:
* * * * * /bin/echo "Meh" >> /home/warlord/crontest.dat
* * * * * env > /tmp/env.output
does return me a number, which indicates that the service is running. I'm not an admin, so I can't restart the service.Code:
I just don't see those two output files "crontest.dat" and "env.outupt" being generated. Running just the command following the five starts does generate them, so there is nothing wrong with the commands themselves.
Isn't five starts supposed to run the job every minute? What am I missing here?
