Autogenerate cron task with new server
I try to create new server and add in User Data command to create new cron task.
sudo apt-get install cron (crontab -l ; echo "* * * * * php /var/www/html/test.php") | crontab -
When I run ‘nano /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root’, I get :
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall. # (- installed on Wed May 24 08:27:25 2017) # (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 2.13 1994/01/17 03:20:37 vixie Exp $) * * * * * php /var/www/html/test.php
Unfortunelly server doesn’t run my test file.
PHP syntax in file is correct, because when I run it via browser everything work propelly.
