I am trying to create two custom cron schedules for some scripts I am creating. This is my first time doing so. I have searched online and below is what I have come up with.

The first one I only want to run at 6pm, 10pm, and 11pm every Saturday. Would this be how it is: 0 18,22,23 * * 0

The second one I only want to run at 3am every Sunday. Would this be how it is: 0 3 * * 6


(Edited: Removed the line about missing fields as that did not apply any longer.)

  • Using cron job generator like http://www.crontab-generator.org/ that very easy way.

The Saturday schedule should have a day of 6 and the Sunday job should run on day 7.

0 18,22-23 * * 6

0 3 * * 7

I don't know what you mean by missing fields.

I guess I switched the days by accident. I read somewhere that 0 and 7 were both fields for Sunday. Is that not correct? Not that it matters that much. As far as the missing fields, I figured that out but forgot to remove it from my post before I posted it. It was the "*". I did not realize I needed to add those at first. Thanks for looking it over for me!
