Adding a cron job in standard mode
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 
files. Standard mode gives you a range of pre-set options for adding your cron job 
and is easier to use than advanced mode.

1 To access the Cron Jobs Menu, see:

2 Click on Standard to access the Standard Cron Manager.

3 Enter the email address you wish the output of the command run by the cron job 
to be sent to in the field next to .... will be sent :

Command to run:

5 Select how often you wish the command to be run by selecting an option in each 
of the boxes.

6 Click on Save Crontab to save your changes and set up your cron job.


The command run by the cron job must be a valid command. Try running the 
command first from the command line to make sure it works before adding it to a 
cron job.
