I'm trying to grasp how to run crons under chrooted users.
I'm on Ubuntu, and using ISPConfig where I can.
I created a cronjob in ISPConfig which resulted in a file /etc/cron.d/ispc_chrooted_web1 with:
MAILTO='' SHELL='/usr/sbin/jk_chrootsh' */2 * * * * web1 /etc/cron.d/job1
But the job isn't getting run.
So I'm wondering:
1) What is actually calling this file? I don't see any log errors so it's hard to track down what's wrong.
But, I'm assuming this user doesn't have necessary permissions. But what user is it, a new jailed user, or the user web1?? Which leads to question two:
2) What exactly is that SHELL line is doing?
3) How can I start to narrow down what's keeping this from running, and how do I go about setting the necessary permissions? Does the web1 user just need access to execute the job1 file?
I commented out the SHELL line and it still didn't run.
