Ferret cron appears to have not run


#1

I have a Dreamhost account with a number of domains in it. Within the last couple of months I installed the ferret script as suggested at the bottom of this wiki in each of the domains to detect and report on file changes and installs. It runs once a day in each domain and reports to me by email.

Last night, it either did not run, or did not send out the email, on every one of the domains. How can I tell?

It’s better to use git to check on file modifications like the real author (myqlarson) suggests.
