Several people suggested checking the permissions to
the /home/user/.ssh directory and the
/home/user/.ssh/authorized_keys file. (Thanks if your
As suggested I set the permissions for the .ssh
directory to 700 and set the permissions for the
authorized_keys file to 600 and made sure the owner
and group were set to my username for both and it
fixed the problem I was having.
My problem was that I was creating the .ssh directory
myself and not letting ssh-keygen do the work so the
permissions were wrong there and I hadn't set the
correct permissions for the authorized_keys file.
I've got it running from the crontab right now and
it's been working great.
I hope this solves your problem as well.
