How do I run scheduled tasks (cron jobs) on my account?

Scheduled tasks (also known as cron jobs) can be set up though PoweredByPenguins. This feature allows a command to be executed automatically on a set schedule - as regularly as once an hour, or as rarely as once a year. 

Cron tasks can be set to run on every hour, day, week or month. Up to three cron jobs can be set up on each hosting package. If more than three commands are required, a script can be executed to carry out the tasks. 

To setup a scheduled task simply log into your PoweredByPenguins Control Panel, select 'Web Tools' and follow the instructions for 'Scheduled Tasks'.
