Best practices for virtual servers crontab

as you know many web applications need scheduled jobs in crontab.
We used to set them by running “crontab -e” from the owner shell. However:

  1. is there a way to configure crontab directly from Virtualmin web interface?
  2. does this crontab configuration survive a virtual server backup and restore onto a new Virtualmin instance?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Yes, Webmin has a cron module under the “System -> Schedules Cron Jobs”

  2. No, right now there’s no way to associate cron jobs with Virtualmin virtual servers, so they aren’t included in backups. Might be a nice idea though to put that on the developers’ to do list! :slight_smile:
