Creating automated tasks (cron jobs) in cPanel
Cronjobs can be run automated tasks or scripts at set times. To set up your cron job, please follow these steps:
- Log in to your cPanel service.
- Click on the Cron Jobs icon in cPanel, under the Advanced header.
- Specify the frequency you want to run it (hour, minute, day, month) and the command to execute (including the path to file).
- Click Add New Cron Job.
That’s it! The script/command you have specified will run at the time you have set.
When configuring your new cron job, please consider the shortest allowed frequency of 15 minutes as stated within the VentraIP Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
