Cron Jobs With Ubuntu

Cron Jobs With Ubuntu

With Ubuntu, you have a couple ways to setup cron jobs. You can run the 'crontab -e' from the command line or, you can edit the /etc/crontab file. The /etc/crontab file will run no matter which user is logged into the system. If you are a single user, keeping everything in this file is a valid option.
