Making a cronjob for downing the database and poweing off the system,
 
hello every body,

i am using ASYCUDA++ system which for custom's, the server is after taking a backup is running again on 19:30, so i am going to be down automatically on 19:31 the ASYCUDA++ and oracle database, and also power off the system,

please help me in this regard,

it wouldn't be a cron job, you're better off using at.

Code:

at 19:31 /sbin/poweroff

while i am trying to use this in my test serve, it says there is no crontba for root user.
crontab is installing a new cronjob

I suggested already that you shouldn't use cron.

That's got to be the smallest Oracle DB dump I've ever seen.

then what to do dear?

as above, you should use at. And don't call people "dear", it's what you'd call your wife. :)

thanks and sorry, but still i have the problem, it seems there is no crontab file or smothing like that in the system, because while i am going to save your mentioned cron job it says nothing installed and there is no crontab in the path.
