    -bash: command not found Assistance Needed

    I have a shell script below that produces the following error:
    -bash: rotateLogs: command not found

    Can you tell me what might be the problem? Thanks.

    cd /usr/local/apache/logs
    cat access_log > access_log.prior-month ; cat /dev/null > access_log
    cat error_log > error_log.prior-month ; cat /dev/null > error_log

    It looks like you need to download a script to do what you want.

    Solved it myself.

    You need to run the script using the full path. I was running the script from the command prompt as rotateLogs.sh

    Run as /full/path/to/script/rotateLogs.sh

    Next problem. Now that I have the script working, I want to run it as a CRON job.

    I am using cpanel and when the crontab runs, I get a permission denied error on each of the 4 log files in the script.

    My log files are set as:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root

    My script is set as:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 user user

    I believe it has something to do with the the cPanel user not being 'root'. So I changed my script to:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root

    I still get permission denied on the 4 files.

    Any ideas on how I can get a cPanel CRONTAB to run in the case?

    Solved it. Ended up bypassing cPanel's CRONTAB editor and SSH'd into crontab -e
