If you are using cron then you do not need to use whenever. Simple
run the rake task from cron.

Whenever just helps to use cron with simple ruby syntax.
To make it run cronjobs. You need to:

  1. Exec in your project folder:
    wheneverize .
    This will create config/schedule.rb file.

  2. There type some action needed to be done with cron:
    every 3.hours do
    rake “my:rake:task”
    end

  3. Save it and execute that
    whenever --update-crontab
    This will update crontab file.
    You can ensure that crontab is written by
    crontab -l

  4. And final point restart cron
    sudo services cron restart

Enjoy =)

whenever --update-crontab -set=‘environment=development’

“And final point restart cron
sudo services cron restart”

I am using Ubuntu 10.04,i tried running this code sudo /etc/init.d to
restart the cron,but did not work,do you have any fixes for that

If I had looked up whenever before replying then my post might have
been more helpful :frowning:

dv abhi,
Can you provide more info?
Have you tried to run sudo services cron restart and what output it
gives?
