The PCman's Free Crontab Generator

Crontab syntax looks like this:

30 5 * * * /usr/you/home/runme.pl

The first number is the minute of the hour that the command will be executed.
The second number is the hour of the day that the command will be executed.
The third number is the day of the month that the command will be executed.
The fourth number is the month of the year that the command will be executed.
The fifth number is the day of the week that the command will be executed.
The last part is the server path where the script to be run is located on the server.
The syntax above would execute runme.pl everyday at 5:30AM.

For example, * * * * * would mean every min
and 0 0 * * * would mean at midnight.

1. On the next page you will download the file you have created: crontab.txt

2. Upload the file "crontab.txt" using ASCII mode. (You can upload the crontab file to any place you like. You can put it in your cgi-bin so it will stay private.)

3. Then telnet into your server and type the server path to where you uploaded the file. Use the server path not the URL or web address. Ask your web host for this information if you don't know what it is. Type cd then the server path see example below.
cd /usr/you/home/directory
This will take you to the directory where you uploaded the crontab file.

4. To execute your crontab file use the telnet program and type this:
crontab crontab.txt
