I've made a script that backs some files up and puts them in a folder,
When I do
It works, I just want to make it a cron job so that it runs every night
I have this line in /etc/crontab
30 23 * * * /bin/bash /data/backups/scripts/nightlybackups.sh
The script leaves a log file, indicating when it was called, and I can see that the cron never calls this script, am I doing something wrong?
