    I may have asked for this before. I guess I can not believe others would not want this. Please consider / reconsider.

    On the CRON page the server time needs to be specified as the default. I have no problem if you might want to give the hosting service the option to take it off. However, I suspect none would even think about turning it on. It would just not be that big of a deal.

    However, for a user that needs to set the proper time so that their job runs at the desired time, we need to know the server time. I use four different hosting services and all provide the server time except for cPanel. I've lost money because I did not calculate the appropriate time to set my CRON job.

    Please put the server time on the CRON setup page.
