    Default cpanel users running cron jobs

    I want users who have their own cpanel account to be able to run the following command.

    /scripts/pkgacct their-account-name

    Can they do this through their cpanel (via the cron job tab)?? - Or if I create a script that would do it, and they could just run the script.

    Any help appreciated, as I have never set up a cron job before.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    /scripts/ is owned by root.

    Why would you need/want this for your users?

    Because from past experience the resulting backup file is very easy to restore, compared to the ones in WHM and cpanel.

    They can already run pkgacct from their cpanel account from the backups menu.

    It's called "Generate full backup".
