What is a CRON Job

Cron is the time-based job scheduler. It enables users to schedule jobs (commands or shell scripts) to run
 periodically at certain times or dates. It is commonly used to automate system maintenance or administration,
 though its general-purpose nature means that it can be used for other purposes, such as connecting to the
 Internet and downloading email.

Procedure

You can ADD CRON Job from your Bread Basket Panel > Server Settings > Cron Job
