I'm trying to add a cron job and am getting the following in the cron log
when I try to add the job:

(tmp.1150) ORPHAN (no passwd entry)

Here is the the cron entry I'm trying to add:

00 03 * * * /usr/MYSQL_BACKUP_SCRIPT/mysql_backup.3.1.cgi 1>/dev/null

The mysql_backup.3.1.cgi script is written in perl.

If I'm logged in as root I can run the script just fine using the command
I'm trying to add into cron.

Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance.
