    Okee I know I am way over my head in this. but here I go,

    I need to set a script to run every ten min. I have searched the forum and think to know that I must edit the
    Code:
    crontab -e
    output.

    Code:
    30 00 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/logs.php &> /dev/null
    59 23 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/ftp_logs.php &> /dev/null
    59 23 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/mail_logs.php &> /dev/null
    59 23 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/cleanup.php &> /dev/null
    0 4 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/webalizer.php &> /dev/null
    0,30 * * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/check_services.php &> /dev/null
    15 3,15 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/quota_msg.php &> /dev/null
    40 00 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/traffic.php &> /dev/null
    05 02 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/backup.php &> /dev/null
    0 4 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/awstats.php &> /dev/null
    
    I think that the first 5 * are there to set the time. I know for instance that the webalizer is run at 4 o'clock. so 0 4 * * * is 4 o'clock.
    Maybey * * * 10 * is every ten min?
    Can someone explain the time settings so I will be able to run the script for that website.

    And is there any way to cheq if the cronjob is exucuted?

    TIA DaRKNeSS

    replace 60 with 0, but you can also try */10
