I'm trying to setup a crontab which will run my script periodically, but I can't get it to work.

Here is my crontab -l output

*/1 * * * touch /root/test.txt

There is no action whatsoever. Where can I find crond log file? How can I check if the service actually is active?

Thanks,

Hello,

One field is missing in your crontab definition: */1 * * * * touch /root/test.txt
