-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.
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
