http://serverfault.com – I have a strange thing (i think), I added a line in my crontab on an QNAP NAS with crontab -e i saved (:wq!) This line would have had a script to run for every 5 minutes so i dit 5 * * * * and the script name. And restarted the crontab. This script fills a database. Last night i quit trying, went to bed and kept de NAS running. And wen ik woke up this morning i looked at the database and the script is running. However it runs every hour, so i tought i take a look at the crontab, with crontab -l But i cant find the line with the script name in it ? Can somebody explain this to me ? May be (HowTos)
