Introduction

In order to send out subscription emails, update search and browse indexes and do general daily housekeeping on the system, a regular maintenance script must be run automatically daily.

On a Unix/Linux based system this is easy to accomplish with use of the "crontab" facility.

Click on the headings below for more details of required "crontab"'s.
