Re: Cron job

From the man page for crontab:

"You can execute crontab if your name appears in the file /usr/lib/cron/cron.allow. If that file does not exist, you can use crontab if your name does not appear in the file /usr/lib/cron/cron.deny. If only cron.deny exists and is empty, all users can use crontab. If neither file exists, only the root user can use crontab. The allow/deny files consist of one user name per line."

Re: Cron job


Hi,

the users listed in the file --

/usr/lib/cron/cron.allow

or

Alternatively, if the user name does not exist in the file ---

/usr/lib/cron/cron.deny

the the user can add/remove cron jobs.

Re: Cron job

If an empty cron.deny is present then every users can use crontab.

BUT, If both files are not present then only the root user can use crontab.
