CRON utility

August 25, 2013 3.1k views
I am moving my currently hosted sites to a droplet. My sites use many CRON jobs for automated admin tasks. I use cPanel at my current host to manage these CRON jobs. What utility would you recommend for managing CRON jobs on my droplet?

crontab:

man crontab

This thread is closed - I looked at the crontab format and I nearly have a PHP script finished to do what I want. I can't see how to close this thread myself.
Have you ever considered a configuration-management tool like Chef, Puppet or Salt?
I use webcron service easycron, manage all crons in one place https://www.easycron.com/
