    Hey folks,
    I was just browsing through the ispconfig billing folders and noticed a folder for cron that has 3 scripts. I created 2 scripts of my own and placed them in the /etc/cron.daily folder but now i'm wondering if I should just place them within the ispconfig cron folder.
    So my question is... How often do cron jobs run in ispconfig?

    ISPConfig cronjobs run at the time you specify them, the minimum interval is 1 minute, just like regular cronjobs.

    oh ok, so there is no daily, weekly, etc. I would just need to set them in my crontab?

    Till meant the cronjobs you set for your websites.

    Don't put custom crons in the ISPConfig cron folder, use crontab or cron.daily.
