Re: uploading a file

Thanks for your reply.
In a shell scrip.
datea=`date '+%y%m%d'`;export a
2. Then script that runs creates the new test.csv file 3. mv /directory/test.csv /directory/test_$a.csv4. curl --user user:password -T '/user/directory1/test_$a.csv' 'https://webcloud/directory1/directory2/'5. mv yesterday's test_date.csv file onto processed directory.
The CURL bit is not working unless it like curl --user user:password -T '/user/directory1/test_20200925.csv' 'https://webcloud/directory1/directory2/'ie: exact name for the csv file like test_20200925.csv rather than test_$a.csv

The file is a csv file created every day. then the file will stamp with todays date at the end of it before upload, The CURL command is a part of Linux cron job which will run on daily bases to create and then transfer each days new csv file onto a WebDav directory..

A few questions/thoughts:
Are those the exact crontab commands, or are they in a shell script?
Can you get a log of the job as it ran with "set -x" if in a script?
Shell variables are not evaluated between apostrophes.
only between quotation marks, so:
curl --user user:password -T '/user/directory1/test_'"$a"'.csv' 'https://web_cloud.com/directory1/directory2/
Is "a" set in that same script? I don't believe cron jobs
inherit environment variables from the submitter.
