How do I set up a cron job? (compare to the Windows scheduler)


You can set up cron jobs with the "crontab" command from the shell.
  • crontab -l will show you your currently set up cron jobs on the server.
  • crontab -r will delete your current cron jobs.
  • crontab -e will allow you to add or edit your current cron jobs by using your default text editor to edit your "crontab file".

If your web host does not allow you to use the crontab command and / or you do not want to (or cannot) edit the crontab file (which is usually /etc/crontab, then you might find that there are subdirectories


where you can add your job as a shell script in the appropriate directory. (This is the case if your host uses the ensim environment.)
This still requires that you have write privilege in these directories.

No matter how old you are, family history is important. While you might not think so at the time, as you get older there will be things you and your grandchildren will want to know. Most of us don't realise it until the older generations are gone and you can't replace first hand comments. Don't just put in about the good times, add in the harder times and how you overcame those trials. Another thing to remember is what caused the deaths of those you loved. There are many things that have been found to continue into future generations that knowing it runs in the family can be helped with now or possible in the future. prevention starts with knowing where to start. I wish someone had taken the time to write these things down for mew to be able to go back to. My Grandmother and my mother told us many stories of what things happened in their lives and about the people in their lives. I now wish someone had written those things down since both have passed now. But I never thought at that busy point in my life that I would one day want to remember all those things. So much family history is lost when the older generations are gone. Please pass it on to your family while you can. You can even just do it digitally so it can be accessed by family later on.Family pictures are something to cherish also. Just be sure to write down who is pictured in them, where they are taken and when. I have found family pictures that no one now even knows who is in them.
