I have a script that is set to run after reboot with @reboot. There is a problem with the script and crashing the system as soon as it boot up. Is there away to prevent the job from running?

    Comment it out or remove it. This isn't difficult. Aug 3, 2020 at 2:37
  • That is assuming I can log in, but now I can't. It will just crash the system and shut it down as soon as it boot up

    Read up on single user mode. You can log in that way to comment or delete the cronjob. Aug 3, 2020 at 2:42
  • Thank you. single user mode did the trick.

  • @hugoleung I think you should answer your own question with what was done or delete your question, since it appears there's no answer needed anymore.
