I have installed crontab on CentOS 5.6 x64 via
yum install vixie-cron.x86_64
Here is my crontab -e
SHELL=/bin/sh 0 0 * * * cat /root/mysql-backup.txt | xargs /root/mysql-cron.sh
Whenever I run this command manually it executes without problems:
cat /root/mysql-backup.txt | xargs /root/mysql-cron.sh
I am just wondering why my cron is not running. It's suppose to run every midnight to backup my mysql database.
Are there any other particular steps to configure cron with crontab?
