This tutorial will show you how to add
a Cron Job
Cron jobs allow you to automate repetitive tasks on the server that
hosts your web site. This is a powerful tool that allows you to take a
hands-free approach to repetitive tasks. For example, you could add a cron
job that automatically copies a MySQL database to a separate location on
your site as a backup.
Warning: You need to have a good knowledge of Linux commands
before you can use cron jobs effectively. Check your script with your
hosting administrator before adding a cron job.
To add a cron job:
Click on the Cron Jobs link in the Domain Control area.
Enter the times for the cron job in the Minute, Hour,
Day, Month, or Weekday fields. Refer to the
following page to check exactly how to enter values in these fields - http://www.redhat.com/support/resources/tips/cron/cron.html.
Enter the cron job script in the Command field.
Click on the Submit button. Click on the Cron jobs link
to return to the Cron jobs window to confirm that it has been created.
