I have 2 cron jobs that were running fine but now stopped running. I looked through my crontab and everything looks OK. How can I tell if these jobs are running? is there a place where cron stores errors? Where do I look for cron specific errors, or even a record of the cron jobs that ran prior.
Try directing the output to a log file. Just make sure that it exists and is writable by whatever user the cronjob is running as. (In my example, this would be cyphertite)
I also recommend running date somewhere at the beginning of your script so that you get the date in the log file.
0 15 * * * /home/andrew/daily-backup.sh >> /var/log/cyphertite.log
Additionally, cron logs are directed to /var/log/syslog if that helps
