    hello, i saw that some hosts have cron jobs limits
    start packed has cron job option only one per hour minimum
    advanced packed has cron job option half hour minimum
    expert packed has cron job option every minute

    how is this possible to do this?

    also is it possible to remove every minute cron job at all?

    Hello @Gojko,

    There's no native feature included in cPanel & WHM that allows you to enforce limits on cron jobs. I encourage you to vote and add feedback to the following feature request if you'd like to see this implemented with the product:

    It's likely the web hosting provider has developed a custom plugin or theme that limits the creation of cron jobs in cPanel. If you were to develop something like that on your own, you'd need to make use of a standardized hook that runs prior to the creation of the cron job in cPanel and blocks the action if the cron time is too frequent:

    Thank you.
