Cron files task ubuntu

Hello guys,

My VPS is generating miliaries of files every minute with the names:

Cron.1 Cron.2 Cron.3 … Cron.5000

Within each file there is the phrase:

Cron task processed!

The location of the files is always in / home / admin.

Can anyone tell me how I can disable the creation of these files?

Thank you very much.

It’s likely a cron job that runs and provides some feedback on its run. Try this from the console/command line:

crontab -u admin -l

Hello, thank you very much, I was able to solve the problem. See you :)
