How to run a cronjob on a Synology NAS

Comments (0)

1. Edit /etc/crontab (nano /etc/crontab)
2. Restart crond service (synoservice --restart crond)
3. DONE!

Yup, I just spent the past hour trying to figure out why my cronjob wasn't working (never occurred to me that it wasn't running until about 10 minutes ago). I've gotten so used to crontab reloading when you use "crontab -e" on other linux distros. Once I restarted the crond service it worked perfect... this is like the 5th time I've done this so I'm making this article to remind me in the future. :D

synology, rsync, tutorials, linux
