    I am just curious, I have few servers and when I check my crontab, I found the same line in all servers but at a different time.

    43 0 * * * cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/scripts/ ; /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    24 20 * * * cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/scripts/ ; /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    32 19 * * * cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/scripts/ ; /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    3 16 * * * cd /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/fantastico/scripts/ ; /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php cron.php > /dev/null 2>&1

    Anyone can explain what are the purpose for these command, and should I make any changes to these to standardize them all (the time)


    Secondly, one of my server doesn't set any automatic CPanel updates, so I set automatic updates for CPanel packages and Security packages. Is it suppose to add "/scripts/upcp" into my crontab? Most of them are also at different time.


    I assume this command is to inform me whenever my user make a new domain add-on?
    /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/ --notify


    Also can anyone tell me what are the purpose of these?
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dcpumon >/dev/null 2>&1
    /scripts/exim_tidydb > /dev/null 2>&1
    /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/dnsqueue > /dev/null 2>&1
