This is a script I wrote to upload the images take from my N950 to a remote ftp folder. The idea was to schedule a cron task to upload any new pictures I've take every 10 minutes ONLY if I am home using the wireless. The script works great if I call it from the terminal manually. Unfortunately I couldn't setup the cron correctly, I keep on getting a permission error when the cron tries to run the script, it will be great if anyone can tell me how to overcome this permission issues.

Btw, you need to install lftp for this script to work

Cheers

Code:
#/bin/bash
FTPU="username"
FTPP="ftp password"
FTPS="remote ftp server"
FTPF="remote ftp server directory"
LOCALD="/home/user/MyDocs/DCIM"

LOGFILE="/tmp/backup.log"
if ifconfig | grep -q -e 192.168.1.200
then
  echo Started Pictures Backup at: `date` >> $LOGFILE
  /opt/lftp/bin/lftp -u $FTPU,$FTPP -e " set ftp:ssl-allow no;set ssl:verify-certificate no; mirror --only-newer --verbose --continue --reve$
  echo Pictures Update Finished at:  `date` >> $LOGFILE
else
  echo "Not at home, not synching anything: `date`" >> $LOGFILE
fi

BTW. It seems like something is missing from your lftp command (cut by nano?).

I don't know if following affects your case (I'm fairly clueless about cron)
Note, userids on your system which do not appear in /etc/shadow will NOT have operational crontabs,

Let's hope someone else with better knowledge of harmattan's user permissions and cron's workings will chime in.

Yes, you are right

It's supposed to be :
Code:
/opt/lftp/bin/lftp -u $FTPU,$FTPP -e " set ftp:ssl-allow no;set ssl:verify-certificate no; mirror --only-newer --verbose --continue --reverse $LOCALD $FTPF; exit" $FTPS

I already have cron installed and properly triggering the script, I just keep on getting the permission related issues, it tried incepting the cron package and installing it, changing the script permission, running it with different users, but no luck

from /var/log/syslog:

Code:
Jan  8 14:40:01 (2013) /USR/SBIN/CRON[22640]: (CRON) error (do_command:initgroups(0) failed: Operation not permitted)
Jan  8 14:40:01 (2013) /USR/SBIN/CRON[22639]: (CRON) error (grandchild #22640 failed with exit status 1)

Heve you tried scheduling your script with Profilematic?
