Re: crontab permission denied

hello noe,

if you want to run any script thorugh any txt file that file should have execute permission.

before execute that tax file (.sh) you should check it with ls -altr command

you can use chmod +x to make it executable.
below is one executable file example, thanks,
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5 May 20 10:44 arv

Hi,
>>sh: /var/adm/mytest.sh: Execute permission denied
As Mel said you need to set your file permission executable then only you can run the script.
there are 2 way to set file permission
1.symbolic_mode_list
2.numeric_mode

Make a file executable by everybody:
chmod a+x file

chmod 111 file

For more see man page of chmod

Re: crontab permission denied

Hi

For execute any file u need to give that file the permision.

eg.
#chmod 777

It will give the full permision to that file.
