Cron jobs are timetabled tasks, which are executed on regular time intervals set by the user and they also execute scripts developed in numerous programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etc. Determined by what actually a cron has to do, it can run each minute, every week or maybe annually. There are a lot of effective applications to use cron jobs in your day-to-day management of a site. For instance, a backup copy of the entire site may be generated once a day as well as once per week or an email with all fresh signups for the day can be sent to a particular e-mail address. Such automatic options will make the management of any site much easier. There are no specific file types that can be allowed or forbidden, so every script can be executed with a cron job.
