Cron jobs are timetabled tasks, which run on regular time intervals pre-set by the end user and they execute scripts coded in numerous programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etc. Depending on what exactly a cron needs to do, it can run each and every minute, once a week or even each year. There're numerous handy applications to employ cron jobs in your daily management of a site. Such as, a backup copy of the full site can be generated once per day as well as once a week or an e-mail message with all recent signups for the day can be sent to a certain email. Such automated options will make the administration of any website faster and easier. There are no precise file types that are allowed or forbidden, so any script can be executed with a cron job.
