    Have a simple file called my_webstatic.run

    In that file is:
    ----------------

    webalizer /var/log/httpd/access_log -o /var/www/html/webstatic/

    -------------------


    Now i want crontab to run it:
    ---------------------------------

    05,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /var/www/html/webstatic/my_webstatic.run -nice 19 /dev/null 2> /dev/null

    This do not work, but when i run it like this everything is fine:


    [root@localhost /]# webalizer /var/log/httpd/access_log -o /var/www/html/webstatic/

    In the file my_webstatic.run you have to enter the full path to webalizer, e.g /usr/bin/webalizer and not only webalizer. When the script is run by cron, the Path variable is not set.
