It should run ~/check_phpfpm.sh as my code if i run manually it will work

More about check_phpfpm, it is a script that check if the service php-fpm is running, if it not working ,it will execute and restart php-fpm, but the issue is if i run manually its work. but the crontab does not restart, the server php-fpm crashed and went to stop mode, but this script does not restart, my crontab should execute the script every 5 mins to check.
