    Cron Job with Plesk


    I'm trying to put a task in crontab of Plesk. It's easy to define the minutes, hours,etc...until I reach the command part; since I want to run a Perl script, I wrote /home/etc.../cgi-bin/app/update.pl
    It doesn't work. I've even tryed the http://etc...update.pl ( I knew in advance it wouldn't work either...).

    Does anyone knows what command must I "feed" Plesk to run the Perl script?

    Regards,

    Kepler

    if the /home/etc... works on cmd-line and not using cron it's
    an environment issue.
    cron knows nothing but the /etc/passwd entries of that user.
