Re: Cron Job Issue

Hi,


Is there any way to schedule cron execution on every first friday each month ?

so far I'm using:
0 12 * * 5 /test.sh

but it's for every friday and shell handles this internally checking for existince some control files.

Thanks all.

As Steven said, you must check for the first Friday in your script:

if [ $(date +%e) -gt 7 ]; then

   exit 0
