crontab does not run all lines of a script, but manually it works perfect.


Hello,

I use crontab to execute a bash script every minute and the output is redirected to a log file.
In that bash script there is a screen command to start a screen session.
When I execute the script manually it works perfect, but with crontab, the screen command is not executed, but the echo's are. Because they are written in the log file...

Here's my script:

Script removed for violation of LQ Rules

So the script runs perfect when I do it manually, but not with cron...

Here's my crontab (sudo crontab -e)

# m h dom mon dow command
*/1 * * * * sudo /home/laurent/Games/Cod4/StartCod4.sh | egrep 'running|started' >> /home/laurent/Games/Cod4/Serverlog.log

Any ideas on how to solve this??

Thanks!!

Since cron uses a limited PATH, try to use the whole path to the commands and files.

Kind regards

I did, but that didn't help, any other ideas?

Here is what my script looks like now:


Script removed for violation of LQ Rules

When I run it manually, it works perfect again, but not with cron...

I am not sure if your script violates any LQ rules. You are asking for assistance in conjunction with cracked servers.

Nah, I bought the CD, and downloaded a cracked .exe so that players with a cracked version of the game could also play on my server...
Nothing wrong with that, though?

I don't know. I guess it is up to the moderators to decide that.

But I bought the game, so nothing illegal...
And I'm quite sure that you have some cracked or illegal games as well, so why doing difficult?
Besides, I payed the game...

And instead of blaming me, you'd better look for a solution to solve my problem with the BOUGHT version of the game!

Despite the fact that you bought a single copy of the game, you are attempting to enable others to play versions that have been obtained illegally. That is in clear violation of the LQ Rules:

I would also like to point out the following: LQ has no paid positions, all members answer questions on a volunteer basis and no member has the right to demand a response.

I have now closed and cleaned up this thread.
