RE: crontab error

Please run the attached script.
It will check some file permissions
and other details that need to be
set up properly in order for cron to
work.  It does NOT change anything
on your computer, but only diagnoses.
You may need to run it several times
until it completes successfully (it
will stop any time it finds a problem
and report to you what problem needs
to be corrected).
