    Deleting Cronjob

    hey guys, I need to delete a cron via ssh.

    for some reason I cannot edit the file via crontab -e and pico...

    Is there a commandline to delete it? I need to create a new cronjob

    # save old crontab to file
    crontab -l user > /root/crontab
    # edit it
    pico /root/crontab
    # update current current cron jobs
    crontab -u user /root/crontab

    If you have root access you can edit and remove the cron jobs for the user from :

    /var/spool/cron/<user>
