Cron on server restart?

    Is it possible to setup a cron through Plesk that executes when the server/VPS has been restarted? I've seen this option in Webmin... does Plesk have something similar? The closest I've seen is the Event Manager's "Service restarted". Is that referring to Apache being restarted or would that do the trick?

    Thanks for the help.

    Doubt it will work via plesk admin but you can do it easily with normal crontab

    just use (at least on freebsd)

    @reboot /command

    (this is liable to break the plesk crontab editor - personally never use it for root based stuff)

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using RedHat 9.0, so I don't think the @reboot is available to me, right? Any other options I could try? Thanks again.

    The @reboot for cron does work with RH9. I have a cron job for root '@reboot /bin/date >> reboot_log' and that works just fine.
