I have a simple crontab entry that is supposed to stop a service, yet it does not work.
* * * * * systemctl stop nginx
I even tried:
* * * * * /bin/systemctl stop nginx
Since that't the location of systemctl that which command shows.
That line works with root user, yet not working with root's crontab.
And by not working, I mean the service is not shut down. I can confirm the server is still running and systemctl status nginx show it's active.
What am I doing wrong?
