To begin with, why are you restarting Apache on a
cron - furthermore why with a
SIGKILL (restart) statement rather than
This is a much "friendlier" means of restarting Apache, so that you don't kill off existing sessions.
Your cron will kill and start Apache at 3am on Sunday.
Bear in mind, different OS'es have different possible notation for Sunday on a crontab - it could be any of:
0 3 * * sun
0 3 * * 0
0 3 * * 7
And if you don't want to be harassed via email, you can discard
STOUT by appending this to the end of your command
> /dev/null 2>&1
