Hi all I have an ubuntu server where I want to create a cron every sunday al 23:00 I have read manual and I have try to use some cron generator. I have tried in this mode:

0 23 * * * root test.php

But this I think that every day works right? How can I make that this script only works on Sunday?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you had bothered to read the documentation this would have been trivial to figure out yourself. – Iain Jun 13 '13 at 15:39

0 23 * * 0 root test.php

last field is"day of week" and 0 represents sunday.
