I am new to dreamhost and I am transferring my site over from an old host. Anyways …
I setup my new crontab in SSH. It works OK, but it’s sending duplicate emails, which means it’s running twice each time it’s supposed to run once.
This is a PHP script that emails out digests from a phpbb forum. This cron worked just fine on the old host and only sent 1 email per run.
Here’s my crontab -e:
| hour (0-23),
| | day of the month (1-31),
| | | month of the year (1-12),
| | | | day of the week (0-6 with 0=Sunday).
| | | | | commands
30 * * * * GET http://name:firstname.lastname@example.org/forum/cron/mail_digests.php >/dev/null
It looks ok to me. Any ideas why it’s running twice each time?
