I cannot find a cron/nightly_archives script as part of the standard MM 
2.0.13 or MM 2.1.3 distributions but plainly you have one installed, 
but from where? I thought you said in a previous post you had installed 
from source? Did you install any patches which might have added this 
cron script and the crontab entry?

Whatever the source of that script, it appears to depend on an extra MM 
config variable called EDITED_ARCHIVES_FILE having also been added.

Without the source of the script in order to determine its function and 
the semantic of the config variable it is difficult to offer any 
additional advice.
