Cron Job error: Please do not make multiple jobs for the same command


#1

I’m trying to make a new cron job in the Goodies area of the web panel, the command is similar to others that have been successful over time, but it is uniquely named and the command is unique.

Has anyone seen this, perhaps the error message is misleading and the problem is something else?

Or, perhaps the program that DH uses to check for uniqueness only looks at the first N characters.


#2

I’ve seen this before, and I believe it’s a limitation of the panel. Setting up cron jobs manually from the shell won’t give you this problem.

Thanks, it seemed like a panel bug, but there’s almost always another way ;).
