Wondering if you can help me.
I have a crontab under the username admin.
30 8 * * * admin echo "Contacting blahblah cgi remindme program"
30 8 * * * admin open www.blahblah.com/cgi-bin/remindme.cgi
5 * * * * admin /usr/local/bin/dhcpSMS.py
Silly questions maybe, but I need to know.
-Does the particular user need to be logged in for the crontab/s to work?
-Hopefully I have the syntax correct for opening a website. (to activate the script to trigger a cgi program)?
-Lastly the last line triggers a python script (new ip, e-mail script)
It needs access permissions to access certain commands in the scripts. i.e. ifconfig
So it doesn't work. I have given admin access rights ( "0" root)
But now admin login doesn't detect the crontab since it doesn't crontab under root.
I am confused now.
Thanks for any help, directing to any of the questions.
Have a good day!
