Manage CRON Jobs in Webuzo

Cron jobs are scheduled tasks that take place at predefined times or intervals on the server. Often, a cron job is a series of simple tasks executed from a script file. For example, you could set a cron job to delete temporary files every month considering a cleanup to manage disk space.

Webuzo provides a very Simple and Easy-to-Use Interface to help users setup a CRON task from the Webuzo Enduser Panel.

Note: Scheduling cron jobs to run too often may slow down your server.

The CRON Service is installed by default with every installation of Webuzo. All what you require to do is – Add/Edit/Delete your CRON Tasks.

This article will walk-through of Adding / Editing and Deleting CRON Jobs from the Webuzo Enduser Panel

Getting Started
Navigate to the CRON Jobs Menu in the Webuzo Enduser Panel >> Server Settings > Cron Job
