Cron jobs 
Cron jobs allow you to automate certain commands or scripts on your server to 
complete repetitive tasks automatically. A cron job allows you to run a certain 
command at times set by the job. For example, you could set a cron job to delete 
temporary files every week so that your disk space is not being used up by those 

There are two different modes you can use to add a cron job:


   Provides a range of pre-set options that you can choose. This is the simplest 
method and is recommended.

Advanced (Unix Style)

Provides the regular Unix style cron options. Recommended for users who are 
used to this method of entering cron entries.

Warning: You need to have a good knowledge of Linux commands before you can 
use cron jobs effectively. Check your script with your hosting administrator before 
adding a cron job.
