    21 The first five items (in this case: * 5 * * *) refers to when the cron job should be run. The columns are: minute, hour, day of month, month, day of week. An asterisk means always run. So, in the example above, it says, run at 5 minutes after the hour, every hour, every day, every month and every day of the week. Similarly, typing (5 8 * * *) would mean to run at 8:05 every day.
