cron problems

Discussion in 'Programmer Misc' started by Robert Peirce, Mar 20, 2008.

  1. I think this is where I posted on the problem of mailing the cron log.
    I was only getting the first three lines. Well, I have cured the
    problem and those of you who use cron can do the same.

    I don't know why, but trying to mail the log as the last step of the
    500.daily cron run only sent the output from 100.clean-logs. I tried
    all sorts of solutions. All failed. Then yesterday I got the idea of
    creating another periodic job I called 900.mail. It runs after
    100.clean-logs and 500.daily complete and it sent the full log!
