I am new to Cronnix.  I want to schedule the execution of a set of data table repair commands that are performed by a different application, Cocoa MySQL.  I need to learn how to set up the Cronnix scheduled tasks so that they run daily.

Thanks in advance to anyone who knows how this can be done.

The Cronnix website has simple explanation of how to add a schedule

The screenshot below shows the time dialog where you set how often hours, minutes, days etc you want the script or program to run.

If you are running OSX 10.5 then you are better using Lingon instead of CronniX

In either case you'll need to create a script of some type (perhaps Applescript or a shell script) to open Cocoa MySQL and run the commands you want.
