Hi, im looking to add a crontab to my site. Could someone tell me how i would go about doing this? I want it do do something every 5 minutes, 7 days a week.
There is a wiki article on Crontab here…
It might have enough information to get you started.
Save [color=#CC0000]$50[/color] on DreamHost hosting using promo code [color=#CC0000]SAVEMONEY[/color] ( Click for promo code details )
ok, so i have this example: 10 16 * * * /home/someone/bin/mycoolscript.pl
but where do i put that? what do i name the file?
You’ll have to log into your server with SSH. After that you’ll type:
to edit your cron file. Past in that line you have, then press
at the same time to save, and
to exit. You should get a success message about the new file being installed.
If you need help logging into your server with SSH, check out the wiki, there’s a pretty good article there.
