Ubuntu: How to Restart the Cron Service CodeUnit 05 JAN 2011

After making changes to your crontab file, be it the sudo or standard version of the file, you will need to restart the appropriate cron service. The command line sequence to achieve this is as follows:

sudo /etc/init.d/cron restart

The system should indicate that the cron has been successfully restarted, and you can now simply sit back and relax – job done! :)
