you might have some problem with /bin/bash or is not properly set in the script : #!/bin/bash check it.

It is not really clear what is the error. In your post you have put a wrong executable name and a wrong sha-bang in a incomplete error message. Please, can you paste and copy the exact command and the related messages from the terminal? Moreover, use code tags to embed command lines or lines of code: it will preserve spacing and indentation.

Before you ask, to put code tags you can go in advanced mode (see the button at the bottom of the "Quick Reply" box) select the text you want to embed and press the # button from there. Or put the code tags explicitly in the text as in the following example:

[CODE]$ echo Hello vodka33us\!
Hello vodka33us![/CODE]

which will result in
$ echo Hello vodka33us\!
Hello vodka33us!

This question may sound stupid to you, but
Have you copied the contents of file from some windows based editor like wordpad to your linux box?
Have you open/modified file on windows and transferred to linux using ftp ?
Also try running `which bash` and `whereis bash` for knowing correct path of bash.
There are some other things also, which i am not able to get:
tail -f /var/log/xferlog > ftp$NAME$TIME.txt
tail -f /var/log/httpd/acces-log > http$NAMR$TIME.txt
did you try to run this command from shell and checked whether it is working or not ?
Because `tail -f ...` is used for runtime log file entries.

Try to remove the "-f" from tail and then try to run the script like this:

sh -x autoscript or sh -x ./autoscript

Good luck!
