Hello
I have red the very similar and useful article here in the following link :
http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/so-i-would-like-disable-cron-users-make-them-have-send-cron-us-61455.html


In the following link, it has been mentioned that we can disable cronjob feature for users and create a cron.allow file and add any user which we want to be allowed to add cronjob.
But here is the problem that if we allow a user to add cronjob, we cannot be aware of their executable crons because they will be allowed to add any kind of crons.
Is there way to disable the whole cronjob feature and we can be able to add cronjob for user manually based on users requests, so we can decide which crons are safe to be add and which are not.

Any response would be appreciated.

Hello :)

You can disable the "Cron Job" option in the feature list associated with the packages assigned to your accounts. The feature lists are modified via:

"WHM Home » Packages » Feature Manager"

This will prevent users from adding cron jobs. You can then add them in manually by modifying their cron files in the /var/spool/cron directory.

Thank you.
