Cron is a service to schedule different tasks based on time and that is used in Unix-like operating systems. Users who configure and maintain software environments use Cron to automate different tasks. These tasks are made up of Shell commands or scripts. You can configure the Cron service to periodically execute tasks created in fixed hours, dates or intervals.
First, you must look for the Cloud server on which you want to create the new Cron. To do this, you can locate it in our SW Panel service finder.
Or select the services tab, located in the blue menu on the left of your screen, and select the server on which you want to create your new Cron.
Once located in All my Services, you have to select the server you want.
Within the selected service, you have to go to the left blue menu, and then go to Actions on this service> Crons Management.
In "Crons management", you will see the list of all created Crons.
To create a new Cron, you have to click on the Create a new Cron button.
First, you will have to define a Name for the Cron, then you will have to put the date you want the Cron to start, along with the time you want it to run (it will not be created until the defined date and time).
In the Cron Content section, you have to define the commands to execute.
In the Planner section, you can define each when the Cron will be executed. You can define it by minutes, hours, days, days of the week or months.
Once all the data has been entered, check that they are correct and, finally, press the Create Cron button.
Once the CRON is created, in order to modify or delete, you have to go to the management menu [...] and a menu will appear to select the desired option.
