Using cron jobs on a mac
Posted on 2010-11-19
How do I schedule cron jobs on a mac? Is there a gui interface provided by apple for scheduling tasks on a mac, or should I just the cron command line like how you'd do it in linux?
And, this might be a silly question, but once you've scheduled a cron job, does it run regardless of whether a user is logged in or not? Or does someone have to actually be logged into the mac for it to run?
If the cron job will run without anyone being logged in, under what user credentials does it run? root?
