Cron Tab Problems !


my cron tab command is

Code:
*/1 * * * * /home/usrname/Desktop/BEproject/call1.sh > /home/usrname/ab.txt
and the file call1.sh is as below.....

Code:
#!/bin/sh
/bin/echo "hi"
/bin/echo "HI"
gcc -o output /home/usrname/Desktop/BEproject/apacheCheck.c
gcc -o output1 /home/usrname/Desktop/BEproject/nginxCheck.c
./output
./output1
The problem is that the file ab.txt gets generated every minute which has the output

Code:
hi
HI
as expected..

however the c codes i have called in call1.sh don't seem to run.
They don't seem to run because the output of those codes is a text file which doesn't get generated.

What is happening?
Need help please ....

You're compiling stuff into the CWD of the cron job. That's bad behaviour. Let's hope you don't do that as root user. Either cd into the "/home/usrname/Desktop/BEproject/" directory or create a temporary directory first.
