What is the best way to set the cron.daily items to run at 3 am. Currently
they run at 3 pm which is a pain. I have checked the cron.daily entries and
the other /etc/cron.x directories, but I can't find a time setting anywhere. I
have checked man crond and crontab, but I didn't find a reference to setting
the execution time globally for cron.daily stuff. I have added an entry to
0 3 * * * /root/cron/cron-daily
Is this where this needs to go?
