Configure CPanel Cron Jobs

Step 1. Log into WHM as an admin
Step 2. After logging into WHM you will want to select the Configure cPanel Cron Jobs option in the Server Configuration section from the list of the left side.

Step 3. On the following page, select the command for your desired cron job task.

You can use the following parameters to schedule Cron Jobs for cPanel.

  • Minute – This is the number of minutes in between each execution of a cron job or the minute of each hour that you wish to have the cron job run. For example, you can have the cron job run every 30 minutes by selecting 30.
  • Hour– This is the number of hours in between each execution of a cron job or the hour of each day (in 24 hour time) that you wish to have the cron job run. For example, you can have a cron job run daily at 0900 by selecting 0900.
  • Day– This is the number of days in between each execution of a cron job or the day of each month that you wish to have the cron job run. For example, you can have the cron job run on the 3rd of every month by selecting 3.
  • Month– This is the number of months in between each execution of a cron job or the month of each year that you wish to have the cron job run. For example, you can have the cron job run in October of every year by selecting 10.
  • Weekday– This is the days of the week for which you want to run the selected cron job. For example, entering a value of 2 would indicate a Tuesday.
  • Enter * to have the cron job run at each interval.

Step 4. You will want to configure the cron job to fulfill the desired task and its frequency from the drop-down menu.

You have 3 command options here.
