crontab -e to add the following line to my crontab:
* * * * * echo hi >> /home/myusername/test
Yet, I don't see that the test file is written to. Is this a permission problem, or is crontab not working correctly?
I see that the cron process is running. How can I debug this?
Edit - Ask Ubuntu has a nice question about crontab, unfortunately that still doesn't help me.
Edit 2 - Hmm, it seems my test file has 214 lines, which means for the last 214 minutes it has been written to every minute. I'm not sure what was the problem, but it's evidently gone.
