Hi people. Im testing how to run scripts from cron using the crontab program, the handbook say tha each user need to have a crontab file if they want to run some process with the cron program:
user-x$ crontab -e SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin MAILTO=root */1 * * * * user-x /bin/echo "Testing" went the user finish and save the file the system say: "/tmp/crontab.JIh2pM4Ey5" 5 lines, 120 characters crontab: installing new crontab Them i use the flag -l to see that user crontab file: root# crontab -l -u user-x SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin MAILTO=root */1 * * * * user-x /bin/echo "Testing" Them the handbook say that the root user must add the user crontab file: root#crontab /var/cron/tabs/user-x_crontab_file But here the crontab add the crontab to user root, ok no problem just what to see this think works, but still dosent see any mail to root, them i run again the command but using the flag -u user-x: root#crontab -u user-x /var/cron/tabs/user-x_crontab_file My cron program is running, i stop and restart the cron daemon but still dont see any answer. I read some mails from this list but my system still dont run my test job. I forget something...? Thanks for your time.
