Can someone pls explain why the right answer is crontab and not /etc/crontab ? for what i know crontab does not contain any user. I've searched on multiple sites and they all suggested the right answer is crontab, without any path.. but why !?

man crontab Running cron jobs can be allowed or disallowed for different users. For this purpose, use the cron.allow and cron.deny files. If the cron.allow file exists, a user must be listed in it to be allowed to use cron If the cron.allow file does not exist but the cron.deny file does exist, then a user must not be listed in the cron.deny file in order to use cron.

I don't have in distr (centos) any cron.allow file: [[email protected] ~]# ls /etc/cron cron.d/ cron.daily/ cron.deny cron.hourly/ cron.monthly/ crontab cron.weekly/ [[email protected] ~]# ls /etc/cron.allow ls: cannot access '/etc/cron.allow': No such file or directory So that answer is right answer - crontab! PS. In Ubintu I also don't see any cron.allow

cron.allow and cron.deny are not present by default. As admin, you can create them if you want to create, respectively, a black list and a white list containing usernames not allowed (or allowed in case of white list) to schedule tasks with "cron" tool. By default they are not present, meaning that all users are allowed to schedule tasks. crontab is just the "cron table" containing all the scheduled tasks.
