Question

Noob asks, "How do I get this cron job to work?"

I’ve done the tutorials and can’t seem to get this cronjob to work. Does anything jump out as incorrect? I believe the paths are correct since I was able to echo into a log file at one point when I replaced the script with echo. It was created by root user. The script writes out a json file that never shows as modified in Transmit. Any help? Thanks!

Run it yourself (as the user the cron is under) to make sure it works. Also check /var/log/syslog.
