    chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab

    note you must have root access to do this if you are a end user have your provider do this

    You just need to login into SSH and enter the following command:

    chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab

    It will just change the permissions of /usr/bin/crontab to 4755.

    Don't forget to hit the "Enter" key after the command!

    Search for putty software in google download it on your local machine. Once you open window of putty in Hostname Tab enter ip of your server then click on Open tab >> enter username as root and password for the same. So that you will get logged in to your server as root user. Now, type following command and hit enter
    chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab

    And you have fixed issue.

    On behalf of us noob's who, up until now, I didn't know what ssh is -- thanks for the 411. For the guy(s) with the curt, don't you know anything responses plus the one buy with the enter "tip," consider this:

    No question is a stupid question answered by a considerate member, as opposed to ego-braniacs with unusable egocentric blather.
