I'm running a FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE system and am trying to run a mysqldump as root. I've written a very simple script that does the dump, it works fine when I run it manually, but when I include it in the root's crontab (crontab -e) or in the system's crontab (/etc/crontab), I see that the script is ran in the log but it doesn't do anything. I'm able to run other cron jobs as root without any problem. This script is only suppose to create a file containing the dumped database.
Include the full path of mysqldump in your crontab (either entry or script).
