    Re: how to cron tab ftp script

    here's a good site with info about crontab on ubuntu

    http://doc.gwos.org/index.php/Crontab

    if you need to pipe the output to a file you should be able to add >> to the end of the script execution followed by the file you want to pipe to for instance:
    Code:
     01 04 * * * /usr/bin/somedirectory/somecommand >> logfile.txt
    do you have any other specific questions?...
