Using CRON

Recommended Posts

How exactly do I use cron? I don\'t understand how it works, really at all... I think that this would run /scripts/restock every 10 minutes:

10 * * * * * /scripts/restock

20 * * * * * /scripts/restock

30 * * * * * /scripts/restock

40 * * * * * /scripts/restock

50 * * * * * /scripts/restock

60 * * * * * /scripts/restock

but I don\'t know where to put that or anything of the such.

 

Thanks.

I thought that script in your sig is what you were referring to.

 

log in as the user you want to run the script as, and type crontab -e

 

that will open the users crontab in the default editor, probably vi

 

add your lines in there.

you need to set up cron jobs from a shell, so you will need to have your host set it up for you.
