I'm trying to discover what I need to do to run a program on an hourly
"crond" the cron daemon is running.
I have a directory /ect with the following sub directories/folders
I have a file in /etc titled simply crontab
It's contents follows:
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
Some of these folders have scripts in them already. I see one for yum
called yum.cron So then I assume yum is being run daily?
I would think I can just write a script with the path to the script I
wanted executed hourly in the hourly.cron folder and it would be run by
When I run (as root) #crontab -l it reports: "no crontab for root" I
thought this would list the yum.cron I mentioned above. Does that mean
to say crontab isn't being called by the running crond?
