    Time of Day Needed on CRON Page

    Your cPanel thingy needs to have the time of day indicated on the CRON jobs screen. It does little good to specify that you want a job to run in two minutes when it turns out the job won't run for an hour or 23 hours. Don't you think that is a little silly? By putting the server time on...

    Adding to root cron

    I don't see an option in WHM to add a cron to the root crontab file. I know that individual users can add crons via their own cPanel, but these crons will run under the permissions of that user only. I need to add a cron to the root cron jobs. Is this possible via WHM? If so, where? If...

    Creating Cron Jobs

    Not sure if this should be in WHM or CPanel Forum but as I suspect it's fundamentally a setting in WHM I'll start here. Apologies if I'm wrong. I have full control over our new server & I'm also new to the full WHM although I'm used to Cpanel. I'm pretty sure I've allowed CRON for my new...
