I'm really new on Linux and have no any previous experience on it. And I opened this account to ask this question.
I need to install a cron job
I've followed the short guide here. Well, I think it has been installed successfully. Because, when I type
crontab -l, I see it in the result that
Putty display. I'm using
Putty by the way.
Problem (I'm not sure if this is problem, but seems to be):
I've asked another developer/college to login the server, using Putty, with his own credentials. Means another user. Then I asked type
crontab -l. And the result is:
no crontab for username.
So, I guess that cron job is only installed for me.
How can I install it system wide? What I mean is, how can I install it for everyone? If I install if for everyone, does it run as much as number of users when time comes? For example, if there are 3 users in the system, and I install cron job system wide, does it run 3 times (for every user) when time comes to run the scheduled job? Or having the cron job only for a specific username is enough to make the operation? If "no", and if I need to install it system wide, then how to do that, in what step of this guide I need do something different?
Little information about what cron job does. There is a database in the system/server, and the cron job is supposed to update the database from another remote database, on the first date of every month, at 8pm. I've used
.sh to install the cron job, by the way.
Thanks everyone for trying help me.
