    I just reinstalled ispconfig and at the very end it told me.
    HTML:
    no crontab for root
    Is that something I need to be worried about?

    do you have the same output when you type
    Code:
    crontab -l
    under root?

    crontab -l output

    HTML:
    [[email protected] ~]# crontab -l
    30 00 * * * /root/ispconfig/php/php /root/ispconfig/scripts/shell/logs.php &> /dev/null

    Is it because I have not setup any cronjobs yet in ispconfig?

    I don't know why you got this message, but your crontab entries looks ok.

    The message "no crontab for root" appears at the end of the installation because there was no crontab for root before you installed ISPConfig. The installer tries to open an existing crontab to append the lines for ISPConfig, if there is no crontab before, the above message appears.

    Thank's Till for the details, I should have known this as I am playing with the installer right now. But as I did not touch the crontab part, I forgive myself.

    crontab for root

    I reinstalled the centos 5 and ispconfig and got the same message at the end of installing ispconfig. no crontab for root. I am suppose to have crontab after set up correct? How can I fix this without reinstall?

    Please read my notes above. The message is ok and not an error. I really dont know why you reinstalled your server.

    Why

    I am new to Linux. I get a bit confused at times. I read your posting

    I did the crontab -l command and figured the ispconfig needed to have crontabs to place info to do specific tasks. I was having a hard drive issue as well.I/O arror on screen. So I swapped out my HD. I'll be working for howtoforge if I keep installing.lol, I'm getting lots of practice. I have learned way lots. Thanks for the cool site.
