script/runner and cron, funny behavior

I couldn't figure out why my cronjobs weren't executing correctly. They would run, but the code would not be executed. Here's what the problem was:

This was the cronjob that was not working correctly: * * * * * /path/to/app/script/runner -e production "Code.to_execute"

And this is what I had to do to get it to work: * * * * * cd /path/to/app/; ./script/runner -e production "Code.to_execute"

Why does changing into the app's directory before executing runner make a difference? Anyone else run into this before?

Hi Ryan Mohr Thx very much for your answer. I am also facing the same situation before reading your post. Now me 2 execute my cron file successfully.

Thank you
