Where's my crontab?


Hello!

I use crontab -e to do some boring manually tasks.
Where is my crontab file stored?
THX for reply!

This depends on your distribution. A good place to store these things would be /var/spool/cron

If you can't find it, you can always run this crude command (ask somebody else to refine this)

find / -name '*cron*' -type d
