At least, I think so. My server's system crontab doesn't seem to be happy doing much of anything. It is currently set up to run a shell script, another perl script, a command to perform a chmod, and the 'test' one: make a folder. The make a folder script runs every minute. The 'who' column says that root is the owner. And the command is a simple 'mkdir WORKALREADY' But there is no "WORKALREADY" folder being made in my home directory. This is not very good, as the shell script bans hackers to my server (runs every 5 minutes), the perl script generates usage logs (Every Saturday), and the chmod command keeps the /Library/Webserver/Documents folder at a state of permissions so that whatever is uploaded to the webserver will be allowed to display (every 5 minutes). What is wrong with my crontab?
