How long does it run? Are you sure that one isn't running so long that
cron doesn't start the next?

Do you mean /, or /root/? Put an env statement in the script, and have
that print it to a file, then examine your paths.

You clearly don't understand what we're asking/telling you. I've never
used cron.d; either I set up a cron job via crontab - and you can *allow*
or disallow any user from having a crontab, or it's in /etc/cron.hourly,
/etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.weekly, or /etc/cron.monthly.

        mark "and the pipe sign - "|", means "or""
