How to create a Cron in SW Panel

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.
