i noticed something now. i setup a cron job with crontab -e on a local
machine and things work fine. i logged into a remote machine with SSH and
also setup the same job with crontab -e and things dont work
what could be the cause ? could the reason be related to the difference
between crontab -e and /etc/crontab ?
i would love to read on this
