I was wondering if my crontab jobs were written correctly. I am hoping to run them on a VPS and monitoring them isn't really possible. Without further ado here are my cron jobs:
# cd into directory at 2:57 AM 57 2 * * 1-5 cd /folder_name # activate the virtual environment 58 2 * * 1-5 . env/bin/activate # run the main script 59 2 * * 1-5 python main.py # at 5pm break the script (worried the most about this part) 0 16 * * 1-5 ^C
Also I changed my system clock to be eastern time, does that mean the cron jobs will run using the eastern time zone?
