    I went to add a job to the crontab and over-wrote instead of appended my entry.

    I noticed there were crons there before from centmin, so i paniced a little.

    quickly went in to centmin to see if there was an option to rebuild and yet, there it was, checking the crons exist and appending them to my 'new' file i just made before loading the options interface.
    existed out, did a crontab -l to see my and centmin's crons there now.

    Hoping there weren't others from alma - i'll never know i guess. Hope i didn't blow up the server.

    Note to self-- back up the cron tab too!

    THANK YOU, because i came here to ask for the cron scripts to add, but didn't have to.

    Somewhat limited but through various Centmin Mod setup stages there would be cronjob backups that are saved to /etc/centminmod/cronjobs as well

    Also if you ran centmin.sh menu option 22 for Wordpress installs, you should have before and after Wordpress install specific cronjob backups at /home/nginx/domains/yourdomain.com/cronjobs

    FYI, if you list and sort them by date ascending you can get a sense of the order they were created

    Code (Text):
    ls -lahrt /etc/centminmod/cronjobs
    ls -lahrt /home/nginx/domains/yourdomain.com/cronjobs
