Is a Cron or Script trouble?


Hi
I did a bash script for download internet files to my FTP place... but when cron start to run those files if by any chance the conexion stop, they start to down again since 0, making many copies from the same file doing the job endless.
however when i run the script alone that don't happend, just when i run the cron
Could somebody give me any idea?

No, not since you don't post the script, or give us any details.

That is NOT the whole script, and most of what you posted is commented out. Unless you post details, there's nothing we can tell you.

I will say, based on the few lines that you did post, is that the "rm *" is VERY risky...you should always try to use a qualified path, like "rm /some/path/*" in scripts. Also, you don't post any of the file name(s) that the script is outputting, or even what version/distro of Linux you're using. Again, unless you provide details, there is nothing we can help you with.

Ok...again, an "rm *" that's unqualified is risky. Use the entire path instead.

You could POST THE SCRIPT, like we've asked you to SEVERAL TIMES NOW. You could also answer other questions, like:
What are the file name(s) that the script is outputting? You said it makes 'many copies'...what are they called?
Is this running as root/in roots CRON, or as your regular user/cron?
Permissions on the directories?

Ok...so AGAIN...POST THE SCRIPT

Telling us the name is pointless. Unless you are going to answer questions you've been asked and post the script, there is no point in posting. You've been asked for details SEVERAL TIMES now, and have yet to provide them. You've been asked for the script, but don't provide it. We've had to ask over and over to get ANY information from you. So, either post COMPLETE details and the script, or figure it out yourself...without information, no one, anywhere, can help you.
