Help Unterstanding Cron Settings

,

Hi,

nothing really wrong here. Just trying to understand.

I am using the Debian cron. So I configured my OC 10.6 for using cron as documented here:

crontab -e
*  *  *  *  * /usr/bin/php -f /var/www/owncloud.domain.de/occ system:cron

The documentation states it should run every minute. Is this correct? Is this really needed?
What does “system:cron” do in detail? Does it start internal cjobs to be executed? Is it configurable which ones?

It is a really small installation with just a couple of users, so do I need this to be run every minute?

Thanks for bringing light in here.

/KNEBB

No, every 10-15 minutes is enough.

Thanks!

Set it to */15 now.

What does it do there in detail?

/KNEBB

Cleaning up expired stuff in trash, shares etc.

$  /usr/bin/php occ background:queue:status
