Create a cronjob on Ubuntu

Today about doing cronjobs::

crontab -l

shows you the current cronjobs



crontab -e

if no file exists a new one is created.

insert a rule to active the new job


for example

30 3 * * * /home/user/ is executed every day at 3.30am.

Possible errors:

  1. Wrong permissions!! Remember that the crontab -e is for the current user only. so the current user must be able to execute
  2. computer is down at this time 🙂
