    Disable User cron jobs

    We are not allowing cron jobs in Cpanel for any user, still I see a lot of user cron jobs running on the server. How can it be possible if there is no option for the users to create a cron. I can see a list of cron jobs in /var/spool/cron directory.

    If you wish to disable cron jobs option for users, disable it from Feature Manager and assign that Feature list to the package. Doing this, it will not allow any user to set a cron job.

    I hope this is what you wanted to do :-)

    You can prevent the cron jobs from running by using either /etc/cron.deny and/or /etc/cron.allow. For more information see:

    Code:
    man crontab
