Cron jobs not running on server (Ubuntu 11.10)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 22, 2012
I am having trouble with cron jobs not running on a VPS that I am renting running Ubuntu 11.10. I rented the server to run as a public server for my fork of the popular open source transport simulation game "Simurans" (my fork being Simutrans-Experimental). The cron job is intended to run a script every minute which checks to see whether the server is still running, and, if it has stopped, restart it. I have also added a test cron job to check whether the problem is with cron or with the server checking/restarting script, and that does not run, either.
I have edited my crontab file in the usual way ("crontab -e" at the command line) to contain what I am fairly sure after triple checking is the correct syntax for cron jobs (*/1 * * * * echo "TESTING" >> /var/log/simutrans/test.log in addition to the real command in similar syntax). The /var/log/simutrans/test.log file is never created. The real command points to /var/log/simutrans/check.log, which
wondering what IT jobs might be suitable for a ubuntu geek

I am curious what IT jobs might be suitable for a somewhat seasoned Ubuntu geek with some degree of job security for the future?
I have never worked in the IT field but given the fact that I spend so much time and effort working with computers, it seems the most logical thing for me to do is to seek a computer related job. I realize jobs are scarce these days, so anyone have any suggestions for jobs with perhaps maybe a little bit of long term job security ?

Start/stop upstart jobs without sudo?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 11, 2012
I've got an upstart script called /etc/init/app.conf that looks like this:
description "app server"
start on started mountall
stop on shutdown
# automatically respawn:
respawn limit 99 5
exec ./app >> /var/log/app.log 2>&1
exec /root/bin/hoptoad.sh "app has started"
Currently I have to use sudo to start and stop it, e.g. "sudo start app" or "sudo stop app" and whatnot.
Is it possible to enable select users or members of a specific group to start/stop jobs without sudo? I haven't yet figured out how to do that.

Cron jobs not running
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2006
I have RedHat AS installed and running fine. On Oct. 3 I changed the time via the Desktop. Ever since that day, none of my cron jobs have run. Even after I have performed a reboot. I also tried a simple task where I touch a file in the tmp directory. That file has never been created. What could have caused my crond to stop processing stuff in the crontab?
cron jobs stopped running
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2011
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a new Dell PowerEdge.
I built the system ~2 months ago and have successfully been running a list of cronjobs.
The jobs last ran on 5/31/11 at 7:35am. Since then none of the jobs have run.
I see "cron" in the process list when I run ps.
Any ideas what could cause this??
tried to change timezone on server, cron jobs still running on UTC time?
- date: January 16, 2012
I've allocated a Cloud Server running Ubuntu at rackspace.com. The server was initially configured to be on UTC time. As I live in Los Angeles, this was a bit maddening when trying to determine what times cron jobs should run (this machine cooperates with another server in the United States). I therefore went through the trouble of changing the time on the server by doing this:
apt-get install ntp
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata // this launches a wizard
Now, when I type the date command on my server via ssh, it reflects the same time and timezone as my ubuntu desktop here in los angeles:
Sun Jan 15 16:29:20 PST 2012
The problem is that I have a cron job set up to run at 23:00 hours (11pm) but it is running at 15:00 hours los angeles time. Unless I'm mistaken, that's equal to 23:00 UTC, right? Seems to me that somehow the cron jobs are unaffected by my date changes above and for some reason the times I specify in my crontab are still in UTC
What to do about the "stopped jobs" while closing a terminal?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 27, 2012
When my work is completed, I generally press ctrl+D to close my terminal. Sometimes I get a comment that "there are stopped jobs" and the terminal is not closed. If I press ctrl+D again, the same comment may appear or sometimes the terminal is closed. Why does this happen? Does this mean that I made a mistake in closing some application? How to rectify that at this stage?
Second, is it safe to use kill -9 command to the PID of running application got from ps -aux command?
