I just changed the timezone on my server and therefore need to restart crond so that it will pickup the change, but when I try, this is what happens:
root@s2:/# service cron restart stop: Unknown job: cron start: Unknown job: cron
root@s2:/# /etc/init.d/cron restart Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service cron restart initctl: Unknown job: cron Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities, e.g. stop cron ; start cron. The restart(8) utility is also available.
The process list says:
root@s2:/# ps aux | grep cron root 10051 0.0 0.1 21992 732 ? Ss 11:09 0:00 cron
What am I doing wrong please?
