Anyone know about Cron Job? Cron Job is one of utility programs on Linux, actually Cron not only Linux, but also on Windows. Cron job used to execute commands automatically at a specific time or a specific course. Maybe a little different in windows system normally for Windows system we use to automate the execution of the file. Bat or it could be in the scheduler that is in the file and that program in a Linux or Unix system called Cron and to do so is called Cron Job execution. Scheduling system is available in Linux, which at the beginning of the birth of Unix Cron is contained in the current system - currently in the adoption of Linux operating systems.

Cron can be found on a web server Cpanel. This is used to execute Tasks / command - the command to be automatically executed by the web server, usually a Web server using the Linux and Unix operating systems have.

Cron was developed in the early release of V7 Unix, in 1979. And since it was developed, and the latest developments made by Redhat who forked (rewrite) the previous versions Cron Script.
