I have a python script that completes exactly as expected when run manually as the root user. When I put the script into cron.daily it crashes 100% of the time.
The error is a timeout error, but this question is not about troubleshooting the error directly.
Executing this works:
But it crashes when run automatically via cron.
The Question: What is different about a root bash shell and the environment /etc/cron.daily executes in?
