I have to setup a scheduled task on a server, and I just read through
some crontab docs. Now I'm confused. It's not so much the syntax of the
cron job to define (I got that), it's more... how do I get to define it?
Use a text editor (vi or the likes) to edit /etc/crontab directly? Or
create some empty file in /etc/cron.daily or /etc/cron.hourly or the
likes and then edit it using crontab -e ?
Anyway, here's what I'd like to do.
I have a script:
I want to run that script every day at 07:00 in the morning. Once. Now
how would I go about that? The thing is: I'd like to know an orthodox
way to go about this.
You can be laconic in your answers, I'll retrive the details in the docs.
