With the anacrontab function installed on our Simple Hosting offers, you can schedule in advance the execution of tasks without having to do them manually in the future. Based on the same principle as the popular crontab of Linux systems, anacrontab is a plugin that has been modified by our R&D team that allows scheduling a task from one hour away to a year in the future.
Using this function, with a little development work on your part, you can schedule database backups. You'll choose the frequency that you want, and the system will do the rest. Likewise, you will no longer need to monitor the amount of messages in your logs directory if you make a script to empty it automatically for example.
