Re: Cannot Start Cron
"Harig, Mark" <email@example.com> wrote in message
Please run the attached diagnostic script.
It will attempt to determine whether there
are any problems with the various files
needed by cron. It does NOT modify any
files (which you can verify for yourself
by reading the script, if you want).
Thanks, Mark. Ran it and got the following....
This script did not find any errors in your crontab setup.
If you are still unable to get cron to work, then try
shutting down the cron service, uninstalling it,
reinstalling it, and restarting it.
The following commands will do that:
$ cygrunsrv --stop cron
$ cygrunsrv --remove cron
$ cygrunsrv --install cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D
$ cygrunsrv --start cron
If none of this fixes the problem, then report your problem
to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a copy of your crontab,
('crontab -l') and the output of 'cygcheck -srv > cygcheck.txt'.
PLEASE include the generated files 'cygcheck.txt' *as an attachment*,
and NOT in the body of the mail message.
