    Hi

    I am testing a script.sh and i can't get this work:


    #!/bin/bash
    # Compress them
    /bin/tar -zcf /home/backup/file.txt

    file /home/backup/file.txt exist and the cron is running as i can check using tailf /var/log/cron

    Why is not running?

    I was try also as
    tar -zcf /home/backup/file.txt

    Thanks
