- Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron.
- Each task to run has to be defined through a single line
- indicating with different fields when the task will be run
- and what command to run for the task
- To define the time you can provide concrete values for
- minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon),
- and day of week (dow) or use ‘*’ in these fields (for ‘any’).#
- Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron’s system
- daemon’s notion of time and timezones.
- Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through
- email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected).
- For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts
- at 5 a.m every week with:
- 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/
- For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8)
- m h dom mon dow command
