Python from crontab

software development


I have a python script that works great when I execute it manually through SSH. But when I set up a cronjob to run it, I get back this error every time.

ImportError: No module named

I’ve tried setting up django via these two methods and got the same error message with each:


Have you tried indicating the full path to the module?

Bear with me, I’m a Python newb.
the import statement looks like this now:
from import setup_environ

how would I change that to include the full path??


Thanks for you help, I just figured it out. I guess crontabs on dreamhost run without environment. I added this to the top of my script

import sys, os

per a comment I found on this Blog:

hope this helps someone!
