I made a short script on one server to backup a folder and send it via FTP to another server. I'm trying to set it to run every minute using crontab. It works perfectly when I run it manually, but when cron runs it, nothing appears to happen (i.e. no file received on the other end). As I said in the title, the task shows up in syslog as if everything is A-OK.

#! /bin/sh cd /root FILENAME="backup-$(date +%b_%d_%Y_%H:%M).zip" zip -r $FILENAME folder ftp -in 22.214.171.124 24721 << EOF > ~/log.txt 2>&1 user myusername binary cd Desktop/backups mput $FILENAME EOF rm $FILENAME
* * * * * /root/backup.sh
