Cron will not start back up after stop
So I have a script that does either of two things. Both have the same results.
The first way was to call /etc/init.d/cron stop from within the script it's self and then sleep 3 and then /etc/init.d/cron start.
It will kill cron just fine, but it doesn't restart cron.
So, I tried a at job using a file for the commands. Same commands, same result.
So why is vixie cron not restarting successfully? When I go in and do it by hand, starts right up no issue, but it seems like when it's in the script, the script just kills it and then it's dead too.
Any help with this? Anyone?
