Thanks Lisi. The use of php in front of the path made /home/harpreet/crontest.php run one time when run from the telnet prompt. But it still doesnt run from the crontab. I created a mycron.txt file with the below statement. The put crontab mysql.txt to specify the cron. But it doesnt seem to run this way. What am i doing wrong. Please help.
Help is appreciated.
