Should website owners be provided access to the cron function in cPanel?

    I understand that for security reasons, it is best not to provide access to the cron function in users' cPanel. Assuming that this is so, what is best practice for setting up cron functions for users that does not decrease security and still provides easy access to cron functions for the administrator of WHM?

    Hello :)

    You can enable or disable the ability for users to manage their cron jobs via:

    "WHM Home » Packages » Feature Manager"

    Simply edit the feature list associated with package assigned to the account and enable/disable the "Crontab" feature. If you need to manually add or remote a cron job for an account, you can modify it's entry in:

    Thank you.
