Why different single quote characters?

Code:
-name *'

Why are you using two different single-quote characters as the delimiters?
Or perhaps that was just how your script was copied into the message. But, I would try to use the ' character that is on the same key as the " character.

What files are you trying to find?

The top of your script has a variable for NAME, but then your command to find appears to be looking for * or all files. Confused by this.

The problem are the chars ‘ ’ – that are similar but different: the probelm occurs when copy and paste code in msoffice:
Code:
find /usr/IBM/HTTPServer/apache_cache -name \* -mtime +1 -exec rm {} \;
