syntax error: redirection unexpected
I need to run each 10 minutes on FreeBSD6.0 server (php 4.4.0, Apache/1.3.33, screen ) the following script via cron: */10 * * * * path/script > /dev/null > 2>&1
I know that this cron works fine on other Unix and Linux clones OS, but I can not run it on FreeBSD 6.0 and get mail messages: syntax error: redirection unexpected
I can run the script itself via telnet by path/script but can not run it via cron that described above.
Could somebody explain what is wrong with cron sintax on FreeBSD 6.0 ?
Thanks in advance,

one ">" too many. Wouldn't work in other systems either.
