This question already has an answer here:
I have set up a cron job each 12 hours updating a mysql table. The problem is that the cron job keeps restarting randomly every 15 minutes. It doesnt stop the previous one, but instead runs on top of it. Today when I checked, there were 13 jobs doing the same thing.
What is going on? Im on a Linux Server and have setup the Cron Job in cPanel. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
