Daily cron job not running

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – A quick overview: I have a script that will daily backup my source code repository from SVN into a tarball for that day. I have tested the script and it works very well as long as I run it as sudo, because of ownership of the output directory. So the issue is that I want to run this daily, so I put a link to it in the /etc/cron.daily directory. Here are the contents of the directory. thom@spenser:/etc/cron.daily$ ls -l total 60 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 189 2011-09-14 02:21 apport -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 15535 2011-10-06 11:30 apt -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 314 2011-08-08 16:57 aptitude lrwxrwxr (HowTos)
