[mrtg] MRTG not running by default after reboot

Just did a new install of mrtg, been a while since I'd done one so jumped through some hoops to get the index pages just the way I wanted them, but now when rebooting the server (Debian Linux 6), mrtg doesn't run on its own, I have to execute:

env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg

from the terminal to get it to start graphing again. I checked in /etc/cron.d, the mrtg file is there with the following entry:

0-55/5 * * * * root if [ -x /usr/bin/mrtg ] && [ -r /etc/mrtg.cfg ]; then env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg >> /var/log/mrtg/mrtg.log 2>&1; fi

The log file listed in the cron job hasn't been updated in 2 days either, even after manually starting mrtg. Any help in getting it to run automatically would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
