Perl cron job

I  am setting first time cron job.


This is  my command...and it doesn't seem to work.

perl /home/username/public_html/cgi-bin/


I have :

#!/usr/bin/perl as my first line in the script

permissions are set to 755

the script works from ssh and calling it via browser


It is  a simple script that  deletes a bunch of  jpgs in a folder.


I feel like cron job are working because I typed the folder wrong and got an email indicating no such path.   When I fixed to above, I don't get any emails nor do my files get deleted.








Hey @Cal4,


You might want to call in to our live support for our direct advise from our hosting team. They can at least verify for certain if the cron script is running in your account.

Thanks...I don't have a lot of time to call support.   Was hoping for something here.    

I converted it to php and that one works via  cron
