I need someone to help me regarding cron job. Im having an issue on hostgator that i'm pretty sure is going to get me booted, if i cant solve it. They have already deactivated my account twice because of heavy CPU usage - something about crons job. I have no idea what is a crons job and the importance of it. I just a have an ordinary family friendly niche site. Nothing too complicated. please someone help. Anyways here's the email hostgator sent me: "At this time your account is using excessive CPU cycles please evaluate or stop the cron jobs as they appear to be resulting in your account consuming excessive CPU cycles. Please let us know once you have completed your maintenance and provide us with information regarding the changes performed so we may verify and confirm then check to see if the issue is resolved." Can anyone help me. I am losing traffic and income as hostgator keeps putting restrictions on my account. please pm me if you can help.
