Hey friend,

Depending on how you enter it, a crontab entry may require extra work from one system to the next. Use this to help you construct a new entry:

Try using absolute paths as well. So instead of python3 it might be something like /usr/bin/python3. You can find out that path by typing “which python3” into your droplet’s shell.
