Description

Configuring on the pfBlockerNG Widget the Statistic clearance on a weekly frequency results in this cron config:

  • 0 * * 7 root /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php clearip >/dev/null 2>&1
  • 0 * * 7 root /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php cleardnsbl >/dev/null 2>&1

The Jobs are defined to run on Sunday every minute from 0:00AM to 0:59AM. The timer should be:

minute hour mday month wday
0 0 * * 7

Tested on pfBlockerNG-devel 2.2.5_29

Preview function is your friend. Cron looks like

*     0     *     *     7     root     /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php clearip >/dev/null 2>&1

But shoud be

minute  hour    mday    month   wday    who     command
0       0       *       *       7       root    /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php clearip >/dev/null 2>&1

no such issue with pfBlockerNG-devel 3.1.0 (fixed):

# grep pfblocker /etc/crontab
0    0    *    *    7    root    /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php clearip >/dev/null 2>&1
0    0    *    *    7    root    /usr/local/bin/php /usr/local/www/pfblockerng/pfblockerng.php cleardnsbl >/dev/null 2>&1
