Per the subject line, what controls the time of the running of scripts located in the /etc/cron.[daily|weekly|hourly] directories?

Specifically with CentOS 6.* I’ve noticed that scripts in /etc/cron.daily and /etc/cron.weekly run at different times of the day, or on different days. In my experience on other rpm-based distributions, cron daily and weekly scripts run at 4am; those that are run weekly run at 4am on Sunday morning.

Much thanks in advance,

  • If you prefer this style, you can remove anacron. If you do that, you may wish to install the cronie-noanacron package to restore the running of periodic jobs out of the daily/weekly/monthly directories.
