How to Create a Cron Job to Restart the Apache Web Server.

Earlier, we created a script to restart the Apache web server HERE. Today we are going to add this to Cron so it restart every day a 3:00AM.

Here’s how to create a cron job for the script:

  1. Open the crontab file by running the following command in the terminal:
crontab -e

Add the following line to the file to schedule the script to run every day at 3 AM:

0 3 * * * /path/to/

Note: Replace “/path/to/” with the actual path to your script file.

  1. Save the file and exit the text editor by pressing Ctrl + X, then Y, and finally Enter.
  2. The cron job is now set up to run the script every day at 3 AM.

Note: To list the cron jobs for the current user, you can run the following command in the terminal:

crontab -l

To edit an existing cron job, simply open the crontab file using the crontab -e command, make your changes, and save the file. To remove a cron job, delete the corresponding line from the crontab file and save the file.
