View Full Version : [ubuntu] cron, webmin and 8.04 server - problems

May 16th, 2008, 08:37 AM

i have a couple of headless servers administered with webmin 1.410 - a 7.10 mailserver and an 8.04 samba fileserver

i use webmin to set up cron jobs in both

in the 7.10 server everything works fine as i'd expect

in the 8.04 server, the same (or very similar - running shell scripts from /home) cron jobs are created in webmin in exactly the same way and if i run these manually from webmin they run fine

however, theses jobs do not (appear) to run from cron automatically as i'd anticipate :(

i have checked and triple checked all the webmin settings and they are identical across the 2 servers - i can see no obvious config reason why the one set of cron jobs runs and the other doesn't


how can i pick apart if this is a webmin issue, an ubuntu server 8.04 issue or something else going on ??
