I have a ubuntu linux ec2 instance running on AWS. Upon entering the command
ps -ef to view all currently running processed, I see
root 2346 944 0 06:08 ? 00:00:00 CRON ubuntu 2347 2346 0 06:08 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh -c /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/chat/update.php ubuntu 2348 2347 0 06:08 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/chat/update.php
My crontab looks like the following
*/2 * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/chat/update.php
From my experiences using cron jobs, upon viewing all currently running processes, I've never see the first two processes run before. What are the first two processes doing exactly and how can I get rid of them?
