Ubuntu 12 cronjobs won't run
I’m trying to create backup cronjobs. When I run the same command in the console, its working. But when the cronjobs will be executed in crontab nothing happens.
/bin/tar -czf /var/backup_websites/weekly/all_websites.tar.gz /var/www
14 11 * * * /bin/tar -czf /var/backup_websites/weekly/all_websites.tar.gz /var/www
I did already change the timezone, this can’t be the problem. I think it is a problem with my permissions, but I did set permissions on 777 for the backup folders (backup_websites and weekly).
