Re: timing programs
Checkout the directories /etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.weekly,
/etc/cron.monthly. There are scripts in these directories that you
can use as examples. All the programs in these directories get run at
the interval the directory is named for.
Login as root,
cd to one of those directories,
write the script you want to run,
run "chmod 700 script_name",
test the script
and you should be setup.
If you need help on this topic, send me mail privately to keep the
noise down on the list.
