  1. Wow! thank you so much! This was very informative!
  2. oh shit 185down vote My top gotcha: If you forget to add a newline at the end of the crontab file. In other words, the crontab file should end with an empty line. I AM 50% SURE THIS IS THE PROBLEM
  3. explain to me what each command does */1 * * * * /usr/bin/sh /home/jessh/directory1/directory2/cron.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 i know what the stars do you specified a directory of some sort... what is /usr/bin/sh ? is it where my sh file is located? and i know that /home/jessh/directory1/directory2/cron.sh is executing the .sh file, correct? It would be very kind if you could explain it to me. Thank you. btw, i followed this wiki, and env showed the path varaible as something else. http://askubuntu.com/questions/23009/reasons-why-crontab-does-not-work i think i have to set the path variable at the top of the script how exactly would i do that in my case?
  4. */1 * * * * /home/jessh/directory1/directory2/cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1 When i try to do this, it wont execute... What am I doing wrong? OS: Ubuntu Server 16.04 Here is the error log... Sep 15 09:25:01 jessh CRON[24333]: (jessie) CMD (/home/jessie/testing/testing/cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1) Sep 15 09:26:01 jessh CRON[24678]: (jessie) CMD (cd /home/jessie/testing/testing/ cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1) Sep 15 09:27:01 jessh CRON[24782]: (jessie) CMD (cd /home/jessie/testing/testing/ sh cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1) Sep 15 09:28:01 jessh CRON[24865]: (jessie) CMD (cd /home/jessie/testing/testing/ sh cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1) I tried two different methods... None of which worked For line 1: */1 * * * * cd /home/jessie/testing/testing/ cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1 >/dev/null 2 Line 2 is the same, just with the different command at the end cd /home/jessie/testing/testing/ sh cron.sh >/dev/null 2>&1 Help I installed postfix too, it didn't change anything cron.sh is just a command that creates a file named file.txt
