Subject [users@httpd] Query regarding CGI/Crontab
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2005 04:36:04 GMT


I want to schedule a perl script in crontab using a CGI script. If i try to
append in the file ie /var/spool/cron/username then apache user does not
have rights to modify this. If i give root rights to apache then it could
be very harmful . how can i make entry into cron from script.
