Shell Script Bash and Cron/Periodic

Thanks SirDice

I read the man page, but I have /etc/defaults/periodic.conf, I haven't /etc/periodic.conf. And I have /etc/periodic/daily - monthly - security - weekly, /usr/local/etc/periodic/ daily - security - weekly.

I can not understand how to properly use periodic?
Never edit /etc/defaults/periodic.conf, if you want to enable (or disable) something add it to /etc/periodic.conf. The file doesn't exist by default.

What exactly are you trying to do? Why don't you simply use crontab(1)?
I have recently switched from Linux to FreeBSD and am trying to abientarmi

I solved using crontab(), trying to figure out why and the differences of periodic
