Thanks for that help. Now maybe someone can help me to further my progress a bit more...
So I got crontab fixed. I can do crontab -e to bring up the edit program now. Unfortuantly, something is borked with the instructions on the wiki. First, it says to enter:
0 3 * * * perl /home/yourusername/awstats/tools/awstats_buildstaticpages.pl -config=example.com -update
Which, I already figured out was wrong, cause the crontab wiki page says that you can't use just perl, you have to use /usr/local/bin/perl ... So I tried both ways. But in both cases with my information replacing the 'yourusername' 'example.com', etc, I still can't get the crontab to work after saving and exiting.
It always says:
no crontab for geekshow - using an empty one
crontab: installing new crontab
"/tmp/crontab.1hNr93/crontab":1: bad minute
errors in crontab file, can't install.
Do you want to retry the same edit?
Is this an error with the code the wiki told me to use? Or is this another problem with cron on my machine? Or what? Help would be appreciated! Thanks
