Cron Jobs

The Cron jobs scheduling tool enables developers to add, modify, and remove scheduled cron jobs.

Click a job name once to edit the job name. Double click to edit the job script.

Press the + button below the list to create a new job. Select a job and click the - button to delete the job. This cannot be undone. Be wary of removing jobs you did not create.

Schedule Execution Time

To check when an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly interval is executed mouse-over the ? symbol to the right of the popup menu. Lifeboat will try to explain in plain words when the currently selected interval runs. When Lifeboat fails to prase the schedule, click the ? to open a reference website for explaining cron schedules.

The plain-words feature is not available for CentOS servers which use anacrontab.
