Hi, I have a seedbox where I have ssh acces. I would like to do an rclone scheduling without writing a script (I don’t know very well linux terminal), because I do not know how. Is it possibile to do directly a crontab?
*/30 * * * * rclone copy source:sourcepath dest:destpath
Will that work?
it working, but use full path in every case (and recommended add the log switch):
*/30 * * * * /usr/bin/rclone copy source:sourcepath dest:destpath -v --log-file=/path/to log file/
But i recommended that use a script. It is not so complicated and much better with stability. (you able to add line that is check if the copy process aborted, and restart it, etc…)
What log switch is? A log file is created? On ‘‘path’’ and ‘‘to’’ of the log what should I write?
Is there a tutorial or a copy paste ‘‘how to’’ about creating a script+crontab for rclone?
Hi, I am using this
0,30 * * * * flock -n /media/sdr1/poiu0/rclone_lock rclone copy /media/sdr1/poiu0/private/rtorrent/data/Plex gdrive:
but it doesn’t work, what am I doing wrong?
I don’t have logs, with log should I write this inside cron tab?
0,30 * * * * flock -n /media/sdr1/poiu0/rclone_lock rclone copy /media/sdr1/poiu0/private/rtorrent/data/Plex gdrive: -v --log-file=/media/sdr1/poiu0
I don’t know what flock do, but someone told me that I should write that in order to avoid two ‘‘copy’’ at the same time.
This is the ‘‘mail’’ that I have ‘‘flock: failed to execute rclone: No such file or directory’’
UPDATE: now it works, I used
0,30 * * * * flock -n /media/sdr1/poiu0/rclone_lock /media/sdr1/poiu0/bin/rclone copy /media/sdr1/poiu0/private/rtorrent/data/Plex gdrive: -v --log-file=/media/sdr1/poiu0/test.log
The problem was that I had to write all the path and not only ‘‘rclone’’, and that I had to create a new log file.
