How do I set up my Crontab to using periodic?

Below you will find an example of how to set up a Cron using the periodic command.

 
# (path to home directory)/crontab - crontab for FreeBSD
#
## $FreeBSD: src/etc/crontab,v 1.21.2.1 2000/09/20 02:32:51 jhk Exp $
SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/
usr/local/sbin
HOME=(path to home directory)/log
#
#minute hour mday month wday who command
#
00 1 * * * periodic (path to home directory)/cron
#
Where (path to home directory) is where your root home directory is located. This can be determined via telnet by issuing the "pwd" command from within your root home directory.

Inside the directory Cron, you would put a script that would issue your command line or series of commands that you wish the cron job to perform.

Using this method, it is possible to have Cron run more than one series of programs in order.

You can also set up additional directories and define the other set of directories to be run at various intervals (i.e. daily, weekly, monthly, etc.).
