Wow I have been looking for this information for years and hear you had it! Thank you, Thank you. For those people looking to build other scripts with crontab i.e. reboot your MeshAP this is going to be wonderful. Now I don't know need to buy a timer!

But for the video and advertisement on the splash page I can now add different video based on different times of the day. This is wonderful again,

If you edit the buildcrontab in the hj folder then every time the box reboots it will add the correct info. You must keep the same format as all the other items i.e echo"times path to your script >/dev/null 2>&1" >>/tmp/cron.tmp You will also need to keep it above the first if statement so that it is created every time. once you have altered it simply issue the command /hj/rebuildcrontab and hey presto it will be added. This will allow it to be still listed after a reboot, but after a device upgrade you will have to alter the file again.

There is a script on this page that can be modified to do what you want, Don. It uses curl as Andy suggests.


On Kenny is there away to ensure that crontabs when the MeshAP is rebooted will continue the scripts? I believe the crontabs on reboots are reset.
