    I have the following shell script.
    # Variables
    # redirect STDOUT stream to LOGFILE
    exec 1>>$LOGFILE
    echo "GET /" | nc localhost 80
    (The file name is /home/admin/cron/checkhttp.sh and the directory /home/admin/cron/, its subdirectories and all files in the directory and subdirectories have

    Owner root
    Group psaadm

    and the file's permission is set to rxwr-xr-x. I set up a cron job in Plesk so that the script is executed every 5 minutes; its configuration is as follows:

    Min */5
    H *
    DM *
    M *
    DW *
    Command /home/admin/cron/checkhttp.sh)

    The script is not writing to /home/admin/cron/http_log, and I don't know why. Why is the script not writing to /home/admin/cron/http_log? How can I fix the problem?
