I have a cron job that is supposed to run a script every 15 minutes.
*/15 * * * * /path/to/script.sh
I checked in three hours later and found that the script never ran, even once.
Earlier I tried to get it to run every half hour by:
0, 30 * * * * /path/to/script.sh
with the same (lack of) results.
Yes, the script is executable by me and I'm using my own crontab. Any ideas?
Here is what I tried so far:
- Tested cron by writing a script to echo helloworld, wrote a crontab to run it every minute and waited around for 15 minutes while nothing happened.
- Looked for cron.allow and cron.deny. cron.allow does not exist, cron.deny does but I am not in it.
- Looked for the cron logs as was suggested. Don't have read priveleges, will write to request them.
