What is a Cloud Sites cron job?


"Cron" is a scheduling service that enables you to execute a command or a script automatically, at a specified date and time. You can create a con job (also called a scheduled task) directly through your Rackspace Cloud control panel.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Cron jobs that run over 900 seconds (15 minutes) are automatically terminated.
