Default cronjob not working

i added a crontab in ispconfig.

This created a file called ispc_chrooted_web314 with the content:



9 * * * * web314 ....

but the cron-job is not running.

to test it, i changed the file content to



9 * * * * web314 touch test.muv

after this change, the cronjob is running (with a rights-error - but it is running) After removing the # and activating the chroot-shell the job is still not working.

so i think, this is a problem of the chroot-shell inside the cron-job.

but where can i find more information (for example the log-file the cronjob creates) or how can i get more informations...

Thanks Olli

Normally cron is logging to syslog. Do you have any cron related entrys in syslog?
