- How to write a cron that will run a script every day at midnight? 5 answers
I have a simple shell script that just checks the contents of a directory and if anything was added during the day makes a copy of it to a backup folder. I'd like to execute this script at the end of each day (let's assume at 23:55).

How can I do that?
