Uh...no, FTP is a client-side application...Crontab is a server deamon (service) that can only be accessed via shell or telnet accounts.

The only thing you can do is upload .sh files that contain the executable codes...change its permission to 744, but to create and edit cron jobs, you need to have a telnet account.

Can you not do it with perl?.....in the same way you can do something like...

$perl = `crontab -l`;

print $perl;

Not that I am aware of...you need to ROOT permissions in your account to access crontab.

You may be able to use system calls to access Crontab...but I am pretty sure that the script would need to be executed via telnet or it could be executed via FTP with command lines...but it would not work through a web browser, since the NOBODY user would execute the script, which would cause permission problems.
