i have a problem with crontab in fedora 17
a few months ago i have configure the crontab with several lines to backup some files, databases etc etc
now i want to edit the crontab but is empty
but the strange is that the backup is still runing every days
in the folder /var/spool/cron i have the user file with 0 bytes
I have a problem with executing crontab jobs. I guess I have everything configured properly but when i put:*/2 * * * * /var/www/site/executescript.sh in crontab -e My script is not being executed at all..
If you want to schedule to run a command or script periodically, crontab will be a very useful tool. To add a command or a script to the crontab schedule, the command you need to use is:
sudo crontab -e
