incrond cannot exec process: No such file or directory

Inside you incrontabs, you must leave only 1 space between the . If you leave 2 or more spaces, then the 2nd (and more) spaces will be considered part of the or and it will fail… I was leaving 2 spaces between and , and incron did not work and in /var/log/syslog there were these messages

incrond[xxxxx]: cannot exec process: No such file or directory

This was because of having 2 spaces or a tab … when I corrected to only 1 space, it began working correctly.
