R – MediaTemple cron jobs working on 1&1 Internet


I've having to get a cron job that's currently working on MediaTemple (Grid Service) to work on a new 1&1 Internet account. I've yet to do this yet, but is there anything I need to take into consideration? Or… effectively… cron jobs are cron jobs, they'll work where ever?

It's a cron job to send out a mailing list from a database.

Anything I need to consider to make it work smoothly?

Best Solution

If you're talking about php, you may check first max_execution_time in php, in case the process of sending the list gets over that time, wich may not be very good.
