    Hi

    When I try to setup a crontab get told i need to set permissions of /usr/bin/crontab to 4755, but every time I do it reverts back to 04755. Im logged into my server as root. Has anyone seen this before or know how to fix it?

    Cheers

    Chriz

    Use attributes

    chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab



    Hope that the above two commands will fix your issue
