A nice, easy to use guide to cron jobs / the cron tab in CPanel. Learn how to automate tedious jobs such as database backup!!


Cron jobs are a way of automating repetitive tasks using the Cron tab in CPanel. The beauty of it is that it lets you run whatever script (php, asp etc.) and whatever time you want - automatically. Not only does this save time, but also a great deal hassle. I'm sure you'll agree how annoying it is backing all your databases every sunday afternoon.
