Cron job doesn't work
I have created a cron job using gnome-schedule in fedora 13 server to get backups of the mysql database.
but the thing is the sh file runs when execute it manually; but when it is run through the gnome-schedule program or editing the crontab file using 'crontab -e' command it doesn't ??????
the same thing I did for another fedora 13 server some time ago and it runs perfectly
I did every thing that I can ( allowing cron related options in SE Linux etc)
the sh file resides in the home folder /home/user1/backup.sh and is given chmod +x permission
help is greatly appreciated

Show the contents of this command, so we can see exactly what cron is trying to run:
It is usually very helpful to redirect the output of your cronjob to a temporary log file, e.g.:
* * * * * /home/user/script.sh > /tmp/script.log 2>&1
Thanks so much for your reply. when I execute crontab -l command I got the following results
0 15 * * * /home/user1/backup.sh # JOB_ID_1
finally I tried Webmin it is working fine with Webmin. the latest crontab -l output which work in the normal user account(in webmin) as follows
5,22 14 * * * /home/user1/backup.sh #BackupJob
