    Hi,

    All commands that are in my (root) crontab don't run anymore. it allways worked but I just noticed none of these entries are run when they are supposed too.

    crontab -e just shows me all the correct things.

    What is wrong?

    You could check that cron is still running:

    Code:
    service crond status
    If that doesn't give you too much of a positive answer, you could try restarting cron:

    Code:
    service crond restart
    or
    Code:
    service crond start

    Oh man, thank you very much.
    Most of the time it's the simplests of things were the answer lies and therefor easily overlooked.

    I checked everything but this I totally forgot the most important one. I will never forget this again! :)

    I assume that cron is now running properly again, which is good to hear!
