To get started, first we need to know about the Cron job concept and the prerequisites for doing this task. let’s discuss Cron job briefly.
The word Cron is a Greek word that means time, and Cron/Cron job is also somehow associated with time. This is a software utility that is the time-based task scheduler in Unix-like operating systems. Users who set up and maintain software environments use Cron to schedule jobs(commands or shell scripts) to run periodically at fixed times, dates, or intervals. It typically automates the system maintenance, backup process, administrations, reports generation for admin users, etc.
