I've proved with other file named file.conf, and either doesn't works, maybe the extension of the file? or that it contains? or what?

I need the structure of this program, because it contains my configuration needed.

What I mean is that you write to one file (indicated green), while reading from a completely different (indicated red). Is this intentional, a typo, or did you forget to change one of those when pasting here?

It's intentional, for check that the cron task it runs every minute, green command works, but red command not.

I know the red command doesn't works because in the awk script i execute another shell script and i this script i write a line like
echo "hello" >> hello.txt

I found the problem, I sent my crontab task to a log, and one shell script that it executes doesn't have the complete path.
