I recently installed Awstats and set up the crontab as such:
0 3 * * * perl /home//awstats/tools/awstats_buildstaticpages.pl -config=heavymetalmeltdown.com -update
(Obviously I replaced my login name with )
If I am reading the crontab correctly it should run every day at 3am. Problem is it isn’t. I am sure the command works because I when I run it manually it works and updates awstats.
According to the wiki the crontab is a daemon called crond. When I run:
ps -ef | grep crond
I don’t see anything. Shouldn’t I see it running?
Any help would be most appreciated.
