How to set the Cronjob for first Sunday of the every month.


You can not set such type of cron by using the cPanel. I have used  following script to set this cron. This script detect the first Sunday of every month and then execute the defined script.

Add the following Cron to execute the “/script/upcp” command first Sunday of every month.

00 00 1-7 1-12 * if [ “$(date +%a) = “Sun” ]; then /script/upcp; fi


You can set it in different format

Create one test script file /home/

Then enter your script path in the following format into the /home/ file


if [[ "$(date +'%a')" != "Sun" ]]
exit 0


And then set the Cron job in following format

00 00 1-7 1-12 * /home/
