This question already has an answer here:
- Resetting crontab file to default 1 answer
In my attempt to make a new crontab file work on 16.04, I made the following mistake as root:
sudo su root crontab /etc/cron.d/myjob
I realized too late that I must've changed some default crontab behaviour, ie regarding
crontab -e. I tried to roll back like this:
# still as root: crontab /etc/crontab
Is that the correct default setting? If not, then what is?
PS: The related issue does not answer my question. The answer there only states how to remove a crontab, not how to re-generate the default Ubuntu installation settings which is what I need to know.
