Default Problem with executing php scripts via Scheduler (cron)

Hi there

I've been having problems running php scripts via the scheduler that would normally be run via a url in the browser (for example, www.mydomain.com/script.php).

One particular script runs a mysql backup utility script. When I run it directly from the browser it works without issue, but when I run it via cron I get nothing.

I've tried the following with no success:

/usr/bin/wget -O -q http://www.mydomain.script.php
/usr/bin/php -q /path/to/script/
wget -q http://www.mydomain.script.php

My system is running Debian 6.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers


Jim

What you see in cron logs? /var/log/cron ?

I'm seeing stuff like:
Feb 16 03:46:01 li273-156 /USR/SBIN/CRON[27108]: (root) CMD (curl -O http://domain.com/?ACT=14&auth=BM36F76Z)

But I'm not getting the same result as I get from running the script in the browser.

What's the official way to run a php script that could also be run in the browser? curl? wget?
