Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

crontab is not working!!

I can run manually script of ntopdump.sh but crontab can't run this script very five minutes.
Code:
# crontab -l
*/3 * * * * root sh /root/ping.sh
*/5 * * * * root sh /root/ntopdump.sh
#

Code:
# pwd
/root
# ls -l
total 88

wget -O ntop-$(date +%Y%m%d_%H:%M).php "http://127.0.0.1:3000/dumpData.html?language=php&view=short"

Everthing seems fine ? isn't it? Time priod is right. There is no error messages.
I added !/bin/bash first line of this script but reason didn't change.

Code:
# tail -f  /var/log/cron

Sep  7 13:35:01 argela crond[17441]: (root) CMD (root sh /root/ntopdump.sh)

What is the main problem.!!!!!!!!!!!! Smilie

Code:
# cat ntopdump.sh 
!/bin/bash
wget -O ntop-$(date +%Y%m%d_%H:%M).php "http://127.0.0.1:3000/dumpData.html?language=php&view=short"

My friends, script isn't working on crontab but it is working manually.

Everythink seems fine but what is the problem!
# 7  
If it isn't the missing # at the start of the shebang line then it could be that wget isn't on crontab's path.
try substituting the full path to the wget binary
