Glad to hear it worked it out. Just a FYI, exec used by Monit is the system’s 
exec[1] which require that a script *must* start with an interpreter. Just 
chmod’ing is not enough. So your /root/ need to start with 
something like

<rest of script>

If you do this, there is no need to run the script through ‘bash -c’, though 
this is fine as well.

Two other important things to mention are 1) use Monit version 5.8 because all 
previous versions of Monit axed/purged the environment while from Monit 5.8 the 
environment is also kept for scripts/programs which avoid missing environment 
related problems. 2) This FAQ entry, 
has a bit more info on how to debug if exec etc fails
