Hey there folks,

Wilgeman here, I thought I would take you to the Linux land of time and give you the power to run timed scripts with the cron service! Well I won’t waste your time here is Episode 9.


Episode 9 (OGG)

Episode 9 (MP3)

Have great one, everyone!



In the podcast I said the cron entry order was Minutes,Hours,Days of Week, Day of Month, and Month of Year, but it was supposed to be Minutes, Hours, Day of Month, Month, Day of Week). So my example given should be:

00 03 01 * * exec cp -a /home/wilgeman /mnt/databackup

Sorry for the confusion!
