Cron Daemon email: CleanAuth: Permission denied


Hi,

Since a couple of days i get an email every hour from my web/mailserver.

From: root@linuxserver (Cron Daemon)

/bin/sh: /root/scripts_linuxserver/CleanAuth: Permission denied

What is the reason behind this email?

Just what it says; cron is trying to run that program and doesn't have enough perms to do so.


Check whose crontab is being run.
Check who the job is being run as
Check ownerships/perms & SELinux on the program

It's running as root so it should have enough permissions.

mm i did a chmod +x CleanAuth on it but the thing is that the script is like 4 years old or something and never did the cron daemon send any complaint emails about it until recent.

Well, obviously something has changed.
Did adding 'x' fix it?
