I need that Bash file to run periodically, and it must be as root.
Is that possible?
[root@file nutch-0.9]# locate crontab /etc/crontab /etc/sysconfig/crontab /usr/bin/crontab /usr/share/man/man1/crontab.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1p/crontab.1p.gz /usr/share/man/man5/crontab.5.gz /usr/share/vim/vim71/syntax/crontab.vim [root@file nutch-0.9]#
Yes, just add it to the root users' crontab; run the
crontab -e command.
The places cron stores its files can be a little bizzare, so use the
crontab -e command which will make sure it's in the right place, and I believe it checks the syntax.
