Getting cronjob to work from Django
I have a droplet with Django installed and I can run a script from
python manage.py getimages it returns output like
Successfully found image for "6c90a52a75c5a91054937d6ab3c8cd4e.jpg"
Problem is it never runs itself from crontab -e
*/1 * * * * sammy cd /home/sammy/revamp/ && /usr/bin/python manage.py getimages >> /var/log/getimages.log
This is the last of many editing I’ve done to this log.
Btw here’s it’s code
class Command(BaseCommand): help = 'Update images coloured to database' def handle(self, *args, **options): #get filenames automatically try: images = listdir('/home/sammy/revamp/revamp/media/new_colour') for image_name in images: exists = Image.objects.filter(original_image='original/'+image_name) if exists: image = exists image.colored_image = File( open('/home/sammy/revamp/revamp/media/new_colour/' + image_name, 'r')) image.save() os.remove('/home/sammy/revamp/revamp/media/new_colour/' + image_name) self.stdout.write(self.style.SUCCESS('Successfully found image for "%s"' % image_name)) except Exception, e: error_log = open('/home/sammy/revamp/error.log','a') error.write(str(e) + '\n') error.close()
It should output something to error.log but also doesn’t do this.
