    how to manage that user will setup their own cronjob in ispconfig, or is there any way to configure it manually with an extra script or site ?

    ISPConfig does not support cronjob management yet. I dont know any cronjob interface except webmin, but I'am sure you will find some on sourceforge or google.

    hello I have a similar question:

    a new customer asked me for cronjob support.
    can I give him this?

    how can he setup his own cronjobs?
    maybe giving him shell access so he can edit his own crontab?

    please give me some hints, this is important

    Yes, you must give him shell access, then he can create cron jobs for himself with
    crontab -e

    anyone succeeded to make this compatible with the chrooted users?

    Is the crontab binary in the user's chroot jail?

    it is:

    would it be enough to create /var/spool directory?

    can someone help if this is interesting for someone else?

    You should create /var/spool and /var/spool/cron. You might have to check the "real" /var/spool and /var/spool/cron directories to find out which owners and permissions are required.

    well here are the permissions:

    so would it be enough to add this to the end of the /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/

    that did not work, now I am trying with this and its not working too:

    the error I get when running the script is:


    this is the final result:

    but now I have other problems:

    You need to copy /usr/bin/editor to your chroot environment.

    editor was mcedit so I also had to add mc to the jail but now it works.
