I wish to fetch content from a PHP script on my server two times a day, altering a query variable
lang to set what language we want, and save this content in two language specific files. This is my crontab:
*/15 * * * * ~root/apache.sh > /var/log/checkapache.log 10 0 * * * wget -O /path/to/file-sv.sql "http://mydomain.com/path/?lang=sv" 11 0 * * * wget -O /path/to/file-en.sql "http://mydomain.com/path/?lang=en"
The problem is that only the first wget command line is being executed (or to be precise: the only file that is being written is
/path/to/file-sv.sql). If I switch the second and the third row,
/path/to/file-en.sql gets written instead. The first line always runs as expected, no matter where it is.
I then tried using
lynx -dump "http://mydomain.com/path/?lang=xx" > /path/to/file-xx.sql to no avail; still only the first lynx line executed successfully. Even mixing wget and lynx did not change this!
Getting kinda desperate! Am I missing something? There are thousands of articles on crontab (combined with) wget or lynx, but all seems to cover basic setups and syntax. Does anyone got a clue of what I am doing wrong?
