This question already has an answer here:
How would I go about creating a cronjob that runs at the following times every day:
I tried this but it doesn't seem to be working:
00,50 3,9 * * * /usr/bin/something.sh
After much poking around in the logs, it turns out the issue was another script higher up in the crontab was segfaulting so my crontab entry never ran at all.
I disabled those scripts and my entry ran just fine. Also, it turns out that the syntax above is perfectly valid.
