I googled for cron howto, and noticed that the /etc/crontab file is empty. I want to run an event on a daily basis, and need to know where to add, and how to add an event to run jpodcatcher once a day. Any help appreciated. Tom
First off, if you want it to run in the system cron, just /etc/crontab, on the other hand if you want it as an user cron, just: crontab -e Anyways, this is an example of a basic job running daily at, for instance, 11:00 AM SHELL=/bin/bash PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin MAILTO=root HOME=/ # run-parts 01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly 02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily 22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly 42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly 00 11 * * * root /home/manu/babelserver.sh got it? You might want to read the Crontab manual. Hope this helps All the best. Manuel.
