when you type crontab -e and save it, it is supposed to save to a temp direcotry. What ever is there by default, is what you should use.
For instance, I just edited one of my crontabs and it saved to this location:
I brought up crontab -e again and this time it saved to
So just take what ever it puts there by default. Just press enter to save the file.
After you press ctrl and o at the same time to save, press enter to accecpt the defulat location/name, then press ctrl and x and the same time to exit, what message do you get back? A success installing new crontab or an error?
I also noticed in your example above you're missing a space between 3 and the next *. don't know if that was just a type here, or it's that way in your cron file.
