I'm setting up a new Webserver and having trouble getting cron to execute as expected. I am using a script to create cron jobs in
.tmp/crontab.txt, which is then moved to
/var/spool/cron under the user "Apache". These Apache entries don't execute as far as I can tell.
/var/spool/cron: has 3 user files:
Root 0 bytes
Apache 344 bytes (looks good, does not execute).
JLee 3514 bytes(this is where all my manual entries went).
The manual jobs I schedule are being executed normally. However, the manual jobs create a "sub-cron" and that is the one going to Apache. What am I doing wrong?
I would prefer all cron jobs be created under one User, as I am the admin and sole user of this server.
