View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cron issue with 6.06LTS Server ?

May 21st, 2008, 12:34 PM

I hope someone can help me, I am a switcher from SuSE and quite new to the Ubuntu Server. I have cron running.
~# ps aux | grep cron
root 9722 0.0 0.0 2056 860 ? Ss May16 0:00 /usr/sbin/cron
root 13537 0.0 0.0 2804 792 pts/0 S+ 13:23 0:00 grep cron

And I have a cronjob in the /etc/cron.daily directory. It looks like this job never gets called. if I call "crontab -l" it tells me "no crontab for root", I can't find any cron.log anywhere as well. How can I verify that it is ok ? My script does nothing else than date >> cron_call_list.txt but the file don't exist.
