    Why does it take long (sometimes minutes) after I add/modify an SSH user? They don;t show the changes in the passwd file for a while. Is it done on a cron background job?

    If i use adduser it is instantaneous.

    Thanks

    Are you referring to ISPConfig or some other software?

    I am referring to ISPConfig3. It takes a long time to update the passwd file. Sometimes a few minutes, yet I am able to navigate with ISPConfig and see my changes.

    The backend cron job that does the configuration runs once per minute.

    I've moved this thread to the ISPConfig 3 forum.

    Can I change it to run once a second?

    Thanks

    No, the smallest time unit in cron is one minute.
