Hi,
I want to use the Crontab, but none exists on my Fedora 5.

How can I create it. I would need very detailed steps.

Thanks so much.

Andreas.

run crontab -e and add your rules

Examples here -> http://www.adminschoice.com/docs/crontab.htm

Hi, Thanks.

I got it running.

OK,
So I got the cron to run when I want it to.

The file I wanted to run is a very simple script:

<?php
echo "I Ran.";
?>

The cron log shows the script was sent to run.

How do I know the script ran? I never saw a browser open with the message.

Any help to solve my confusion would be great.

Thanks.
