Adding a cron job in advanced 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. Advanced mode allows you to add a cron job just as you would from the 
command line.

1 To access the Cron Jobs Menu, see:

2 Click on Advanced (Unix Style) to access the 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 :

4 Enter the command you wish the cron job to run in the blank field below 

5 Select how often you wish the command to be run by placing a number or * in 
each of the boxes.

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


A * denotes to run the command at every possible time for that box. For example, a 
* in the month box would run the command every month.

More information on cron jobs can be found by searching google for: crontab
