    Hello list,

    I am executing a PHP-script via a cronjob.

    I use the following command:
    lynx -dump http://www.mydomain.com/news_search.php & /dev/null

    The cronjob is working and IS updating the news-page on my website. But every time when the cronjob runs I got the following mail:

    /bin/sh: /dev/null: Permission denied

    You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that
    corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use
    near 'B: 4.50 (-4.44%


    When I run the script in my browser I have NO errors. The script does NOT generate output on the screen.

    Any suggestions ??

    Thanks

    Thanks,

    That helped.

    Why is wget better ?
    Doesn't it leaves a file on the server everytime you do wget ?

    lynx is perfectly fine. You can also use GET if you'd like. No reason to use wget in this case.

    what about if i want to cron the file at /home/users and not at /home/users/public_html ?

    i used php /home/users/script.php > /dev/null like suggested by other post on this forum but have result on my email :

    "Failed loading /usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendOptimizer.so: /usr/local/Zend/lib/ZendOptimizer.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    So what command i must use for that script to work ?

    can i use :

    lynx -dump /home/users/script.php > /dev/null

    or maybe

    /usr/bin/wget -O - /home/users/script.php > /dev/null
