Cron jobs are scheduled tasks, which are executed on regular intervals of time set by the user and they also execute scripts coded in numerous programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etcetera. Depending on what actually a cron needs to do, it can run each and every minute, weekly or maybe once a year. There are a lot of effective applications to make use of cron jobs in your daily administration of a site. Such as, a backup copy of the entire website can be generated once a day or maybe weekly or an e-mail message with all recent signups for the day can be sent to a particular e-mail address. These types of automated options will make the management of every site faster and easier. There are no specific file types that are allowed / forbidden, so any script can be run using a cron job.
Cron Jobs in Cloud Hosting
Our intuitive Hepsia Hosting Control Panel will help you to set up cron jobs with no trouble. If you don't have previous knowledge of these types of matters, you'll find an incredibly easy-to-use interface where you can plan the execution of the cron, picking one or more time options - minutes, hours, days, months, or exact weekdays. The only thing that you will have to type in manually is the precise command to be run, which consists of the path for PHP, Perl and Python scripts and the path to the actual file that is to be executed. More knowledgeable users can also take advantage of the Advanced mode of our tool and type in manually the execution time period using numbers and asterisks. If you need more crons than your cloud hosting plan allows you to have, you're able to upgrade this attribute in batches of five with just a few mouse clicks.
