In the crontab:

CODE
# Restart server
0,2 * * * * /server/sv_up.sh >/dev/null 2>&1



In sv_up.sh:

CODE
#!/bin/sh

mtaserverdir="/server/"
process=`ps auxw | grep linuxq3ded | grep -v grep | awk '{print $11}'`

if [ -z "$process" ]; then

  echo "Couldn't find MTA Server running, restarting it."
  cd "$mtaserverdir"
  nohup ./mtaserver +exec ffa.cfg &
  echo ""

fi


What im trying to do is make sv_up.sh run every 2 minutes.
And what I want sv_up.sh to do is start mtaserver.exe if it isnt running
Can anyone help me? It doesnt work dry.gif
