Help with cron settings?
(don't think this one went through. Apologies if this is a repost)
I'm having troubles getting my backups automated. I set up a file "test"
in the cron.d directory with the settings...
5,10,15 * * * sunkcost /bin/tar -cf /home/sunkcost/test.tar
I thought that cron was supposed to check through its crontab and related
files every minute or so, but nothing happens. I tried restarting cron
manually, root as the user, and editing crontab directly, but no dice.
I'm probably missing something really obvious for what seems like a
straightforward setup, but I'm stuck. Can somebody give me some help
