How to schedule a cron job to run on specific days of the week?
Posted on 2014-01-23
I need to schedule a job that will run at 5 am from Tue-Fri, only 4 days in a week using crontab. But if Tue/Wed/Thur/Fri is the first day of the month then this job should not run.
Currently, below scheduled job is not kicking off at 5 am. I am manually kicking this job off. Please advise what changes I need to make to below schedule job.
