Cron jobs are timetabled tasks, which run on regular time intervals set by the end user and they also execute scripts written in numerous programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, and the like. Depending on what exactly a cron should do, it may run every minute, every week or maybe once per year. There're plenty of handy applications to use cron jobs in the daily management of a site. For instance, a backup of the whole website may be generated once a day or maybe weekly or an email with all of the recent signups for the day may be sent to a specific e-mail. Such automated options can make the administration of any site faster and easier. There won't be any precise file types that are allowed or forbidden, so every script can be run employing a cron job.
