Cron jobs are timetabled tasks, that are executed on regular intervals of time pre-set by the user and they execute scripts coded in various programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etc. Determined by what exactly a cron has to do, it can run every single minute, weekly or maybe once per year. There are many effective applications to employ cron jobs in your everyday administration of a site. For example, a backup copy of the full website can be generated every day or maybe once a week or an email message with all of the fresh signups for the day may be sent to a particular email. Such automatic options can make the administration of every site much easier. There won't be any specific file types which are allowed / forbidden, so every script can be run by using a cron job.
