    Default When does a cron job activate?

    If it I set it up for, say, 12:00am on september 8, when will it activate? at midnight of my timezone or the server's?

    Hello Jory,

    Cron job will be activated at midnight according to the server's timezone.

    You can check server time by running "date" command from CLI.

    CLI is command line interface. You need to connect to the server using PuTTY (via SSH protocol) and run "date" command to see time:

    command:

    date
