I have written a shell script to start mysql server & send a mail to admin user if it's restarted via shell script. What i am facing an issue if I run this shell script on terminal it's work perfectly & If same script runs via cronjob it's only sending the mail to the user & problem remains same. Is this problem relates to permission & how can i resolve it.
#!/bin/bash EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org" SERVICE='mysql' if ps ax | grep -v grep | grep $SERVICE > /dev/null then echo "$SERVICE service running, everything is fine" else echo "$SERVICE is not running" /etc/init.d/mysql start cat <<EOF | msmtp -a gmail $EMAIL Subject: "Alert (Test Server) : Mysql Service is not running (Manually Restarted)" Mysql Server Restarted at: `date` EOF EXIT
I am using msmtp for sending mail to the user on ubuntu 12.04 Server.
