    On our plesk machine we can at cronjobs using parallesls plesk control panel 8.6.0. However the crontab i add in the control panel is not visible on the shell with crontab -l command. Where do I start checking what is wrong?

    Information: The task ## * 10,11,12,13 19,20,21,22 10,11,12
    1,2,3,4,5,6 /usr/bin/php /home/obi/test.php has been enabled.

    root@srv-01:/etc# crontab -l
    #8,23,38,53 * * * * /opt/psa/admin/sbin/backupmng >/dev/null 2>&1
    47 23 * * * /usr/sbin/ntpdate -b -sntp1.nl.net

    0 15 * * 1-5 php /var/www/vhosts/nbva.nl/httpdocs/cron.php

    thanks in advance,

    Thanks for the reply AT

    hmm i see my crontabs there, but they appear not to run, only when I start them manually they work
    root@srv-01:/var/spool/cron/crontabs# ls -l
    total 28
    -rw------- 1 devakman crontab 198 2009-06-28 20:29 devakman

    -rw------- 1 root crontab 375 2009-10-15 10:58 root

    and how are these included for the crontab deamon? should they be?

    one more issue. a user on the server creates cronjobs in the plesk cp but his scripts dont appear in the shell environment, this is an additional issue that has risen.
