I’ve seen some similar posts, but I haven;t found an actual answer yet. I’m trying to set up crabtab to something - ANYTHING.
It seems like no changes I make have any effect whatsoever.
# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron. # # Each task to run has to be defined through a single line # indicating with different fields when the task will be run # and what command to run for the task # # To define the time you can provide concrete values for # minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon), # and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').# # Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system # daemon's notion of time and timezones. # # Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through # email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected). # # For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts # at 5 a.m every week with: # 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/ # # For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8) # # m h dom mon dow command * * * * * /home/ubuntu/.nvm/versions/node/v4.4.0/bin/node /home/ubuntu/workspace/jim/jim-server.js I've also tried numerous other things including these: * * * * * /bin/date >> /home/ubuntu/workspace/jim/dates.txt * * * * * root /bin/bash /home/ubuntu/workspace/jim/myScript.sh * * * * * root touch /home/ubuntu/workspace/jim/myScsript.sh * * * * * /bin/date >> /tmp/cron_output * * * * * /bin/echo "foobar" * * * * * /bin/eho "foobar" >> /home/ubuntu/workspace/jim/dates.txt
As I said before, nothing is logged, written, or anything else. Nothing happens. Is cron not supported in cloud 9 servers? What’s going on here?
