Check Logfiles of Cron Daemon

check if cron runs the scripts as it should

cat /var/log/syslog

example output:

Jun 21 20:31:01 lion /USR/SBIN/CRON[8702]: (philipp) CMD (~philipp/sync.sh)

From the cron manpage:

  • cron logs its action to the syslog facility ’cron’, and logging may be controlled using the standard syslogd(8) facility. So if syslogd is available it is used. if not, check /var/log/syslog as stated above.
