So in the past I just did a simple shutdown crontab, and that was it. Lately, I want to do something a bit more complex, so I'm trying to get it to run a script. Right now I've boiled it down to a super test script, called test.sh. This script just echoes something to the console and to a file.
However, no matter how many times I try, it doesn't seem to be working. Here is the script:
#!/bin/bash echo "Console foo!!!" echo "Foo!!!" > ~/foo22.txt
And here is my crontab:
08 18 * * * /home/craig/Documents/Scripts/test.sh
I've double and triple checked the path to the file, it's good. The script is executable, I can run it manually from the terminal and it executes.
I'm doing this in the root crontab, ie "sudo crontab -e", if that helps at all.
