A List of 16 Basic cron cCommands in Linux with Examples

Linux Today News - Sat, 12/04/2021 - 21:00

In Linux/Unix, we can run and schedule many tasks automatically using the cron command. You can execute both commands once or at a regular interval. ‘Cron’ is widely used for scheduling repetitive jobs at regular intervals (run using commands listed in a table called ‘crontab’) and the ‘at’ procedure is used to schedule a job once in a specific time period. Crontab maintains individual crontab files for all users. These automated jobs will be hugely beneficial to many administrators who work with Linux servers.

Generally, the ‘crontab’ file is used for backups, updating systems, synchronizing servers, etc. The best thing about the cron is that you don’t need to understand it in detail, but rather, you only need to know how to use it as part of setting up cron jobs.

GNOME’s Text Editor to Get Recoloring Support, Revamped “Open” Popover in GNOME 42

Linux Today News - Sat, 12/04/2021 - 17:21

Earlier this year, GNOME Builder creator Christian Hergert started working on a new Text Editor app for the GNOME desktop. In a recent blog post he talks about some of the major changes coming to the next major release of his Text Editor app, which will probably replace Gedit in the upcoming GNOME 42 release.

One of the biggest changes is the introduction of recoloring support based on the controversial libadwaita library, which the GNOME devs use these days to build modern GNOME applications, and using a CSS provider to override the colors in Text Editor’s theme, making it look really awesome.

How to Set up FTP Server in Rocky Linux 8.4

Linux Today News - Sat, 12/04/2021 - 17:19

The FTP protocol was developed in the 1970s and is one of the most commonly used protocols to transfer data between computers over the Internet. However, despite being an old methodology, users still find it to be one of the best and most commonly used protocols, and users enjoy using it for uploading and downloading files in their day-to-day work. Setting up an FTP server on Linux is generally quite simple.

Essentially, this FTP software package performs two (2) basic tasks: ‘Put’ and ‘Get. When “Put” is used, files will be copied from a local computer to a remote computer, while “Get” handles the opposite. FTP daemon ‘vsftpd’ is a server component that constantly listens for FTP requests from remote clients. It manages the log-in process and establishes the connection when a request is received. By default, it works with port 21 and executes any commands sent by the FTP client during the session.
