Cron jobs are scheduled tasks, which are executed on regular intervals of time set by the end user and they execute scripts written in several programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etcetera. Determined by what exactly a cron needs to do, it can run every single minute, weekly or maybe annually. There're numerous effective applications to make use of cron jobs in the everyday administration of a site. For example, a backup of the entire website can be generated once per day as well as weekly or an e-mail message with all fresh signups for the day can be delivered to a specific email. These types of automated options will make the administration of any site much easier. There won't be any precise file types that are allowed or forbidden, so any script can be executed employing a cron job.
