Hi All,

To those of you folks who have no idea as to what a cron is: Here you go.

There is a beautiful feature in cron.

What if you wanted to run a script every week and every month???

Its pretty simple.

Place your script in these 2 folders:

1. /etc/cron.weekly
2. /etc/cron.monthly

There is also cron.day and cron.hourly to run your script daily or hourly.

Take care,
Ananth S Gouri
