Following is the content of my crontab file.
*/1 * * * * echo “Run this command every minute” >> log_example */1 * * * * cd ~/app && source cron_server.sh */1 * */2 * * > ~/log_cron_server
The issue is that the second command doesn’t execute or at least it doesn’t give the desired output. It is supposed to run the script to restart my server if it turns off.
But the interesting fact is that when I run the command directly into shell, it just works. That is, $ cd ~/app && source cron_server.sh restarts my server.
Can you please help me in understanding the problem here?
