I have a few questions regarding general update times and frequency.

Are web stats run at the same time as upcp?

Are the web stat updates run just once per day, if the answer is no to the previous question, when are they run and where can I access the time settings?

I need to run awstats updates for some domains more often (once per hour), do I just use the following command:

/scripts/runweblogs username

I would also like to alter the time when upcp is run, if I type crobtab -l from root I can see the times when upcp is run,

37 1 * * * /scripts/upcp

but it also has lots of lines just like this.

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (./.crontab installed on Wed Mar 20 01:37:05 2002)
# (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 2.13 1994/01/17 03:20:37 vixie Exp $)

It it safe to edit this file, if not how do I access/edit the master and reinstall?

All I want to do is change the upcp line to &1 7 * * * /scripts/upcp&, 1:37 am is a busy time on my server and I just wanted to move the update to a better time.

just type crontab -e and make the changes you want, then when your done, control and x - which will save the file and install the file :)
