When I run the first one I get
Warning: readlink(): Invalid argument in /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/logs.php on line 125
however the second one seems to run fine. And as for your first question I am sure I ran crontab -e as root.. when I did that it compiled stats that night and had not any prior nights.
On a side note when I run crontab -e again and save it it asks what to save it as and provides
File Name to Write: /tmp/crontab.xaWBur/crontab
is this correct to save it as?
