How to run CRON


I need to run a set of command at 12am every day. unfortunately I’m not sure how to set the CRON jobs done. I have some idea on time setting and all but not the CRON itself. whenever i execute the CRON directly from ssh, an error “command not found” come out.

thanks, appreciate any help


see the wiki article on crontab, that should help. :slight_smile:
