I'm setting up a CRON job on my MediaTemple DV4 to generate a sitemap. To test I ran the command via the command line:

 wget http://subdomain.website.com/?sm_command=build&sm_key=348791hdshjfjdkaiu34

and I get the following error:

 Reusing existing connection to subdomain.website.com:80.

Here is the full output:

 Resolving subdomain.website.com... 12.345.678.90

Any thoughts?

My thought is that maybe the command hadn't completed from the last run? I doubt the problem is w/ wget or cron, I'd look at the webervers logs. –  tink Apr 18 '13 at 18:52
