Hi!,
     How can I run a script automatically everyday at 12:00 pm. I know that I can use cron which is installed on my SuSE box. However, It sounds like the script will be run at 00:00(at least, in theory). So, Is there a way to achieve this result?

Thank you!

Hi,

Type cron -e then add the following entry:

0  12  *  *  *  /script/to/run
