I am working on a customized Linux Debian (Debian 4.9.2-10) server.
I would like to install crontab, which is not installed in the system neither its letting me configure it using the apt or dpkg commands.
I have been given a hint to download the package in my desktop and which I extracted like this:
$ wget http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/cron/cron_3.0pl1-127+deb8u1_amd64.deb $ mkdir cron $ dpkg -x cron_3.0pl1-127+deb8u1_amd64.deb ./cron
And then move the cron folder via SCP in the targeted server, which I have done and now the folder cron/ is at the home_folder of the server.
Now I would like to configure the cron/, how am I supposed to move forward to install the cron package now considering the apt/dpkg isn't working.
