programming crontab
Hi There,

Does anyone have any ideas about editing crontab programmatically using PHP.

When a crontab file is created by a user, where does it actually live ?? Which directory ?

The crontab manual recommends NOT trying to edit the crontab file manually but by using
crontab -e.

Typically they're in /var/spool/cron. You will probably need to restart cron for any changes to take effect.
