I want to run a cronjob that will check if my crashplan service is running once a day. If it’s not running, then I want to restart it.
To do this, I created a simple bash script called CP_restart_script that checks if the service is running, if no, then restart it. The script is in /etc/ and it works fine when called from the command line when logged in as root.
I then created a file called my_cronjobs in /etc/cron.d which just has the following line in it:
* * * * * root /etc/CP_restart_script
Here I’m just testing the job by having it run every minute.
Any ideas, why this doesn’t work? I’ve read that crontab -e won’t work on a MyCloud so that’s why I’m using cron.d.
