Login via ssh and open the crontab file for your user
$ crontab -e

The following special string should do it
@weekly /path/to/file/

Save the file and exit.

This translates to “0 0 * * 0 /path/to/file” or midnight, every Sunday, the said file (script) will be executed. There will be more information in your crontab if you’d like to change the day of the week.
