Setting up a Cron job

If you have a site that is hosted on a server you might have experienced that there are certain types of commands or say scripts which have to be used/entered many times so that the program you want to run will run and work effectively.

As it is very important for these types of programs that you enter the commands or these programs will not work. There are some of the programs which require the same scripting every minute, hourly, daily, weekly or monthly so that they continue working. But, these scripts are not so short and easy to be entered every minute, hourly, daily, weekly or monthly and even if it is, it is not possible for anyone to do this task for 24×7×365 days a year.

For this, it is very important to have a system for this task so that the scripts which have to be entered in different time intervals are entered and the programs will run effectively.Cron job is a kind of software which is able to do this work for you. Cron job allows you to setup a schedule of the scripts and commands to be entered on your server so that you can run the desired task on the server at the appropriate time. For example, if you want your server to accept the emails only for a limited time then you can do this by entering the required commands only once and setup the cron job.

Once it is setup it will work according and your VPS hosting server will accept the emails only for the time you have specified. This means it is a kind of a software that will run a service on your server at the time you want it to be available. The cron job can be setup with the help of the following steps:-

There are two options by which you can setup the cron job one is the standard GUI and the other is the Advanced (Unix Style) option:-
