What is Cron Job?

A cron job is a Linux command used for scheduling tasks to be executed sometime in the future. This is normally used to schedule a job that is executed periodically – for example, to send a post exactly the time that is scheduled. Stackposts - Social Media Marketing Tool requires you to set up cron jobs to perform certain functions.

For most cron jobs, there are three components present:

  • The script that is to be called or executed.
  • The command that executes the script on a reoccurring basis. This is typically set in cPanel.
  • The action or output of the script, which depends on what the script being called does. Frequently, scripts called as cron jobs modify files or databases. However, they can perform other tasks that do not modify data on the server as well, such as sending out email notifications.
