I have a bunch of cron jobs and all work save the ones that access PHP files that have to write some bit of information to a txt file.
I can't figure out what's wrong, I made sure the PHP scripts have full file paths in them, and when I run them from a browser they work perfect.
Cron gives me no errors, no email notifications on any problems with the script, but when I check the txt file (which should be updated every few minutes), I get only old information from when I last manually run the script.
I have the folder that the txt files are in chmod at '777'.
Any suggestions? I need the cron job to work and have the txt file(s) updated.
The first time I ran the script it created the txt files in the folder. For some reason this absolutely fijucked up the files chmod associations. I couldn't manually change them, as I get an error every way I tried.
So, I deleted all of them. I created the txt files (blank) on my computer, recreated the folder on the server, and then uploaded the blank text files. Chmodded them and let cron take a shot at it.
