In Virtualmin/Webmin, there is a "Scheduled Cron Jobs" menu but some programs are adding schedules in cron.daily instead of the usual cron.

Is there a way to get the list of cron.daily scheduled jobs through webmin ?

If you log in as the Master Admin, you can edit cron jobs in cron.daily by going into Webmin -> System -> Scheduled Cron Jobs.

From that particular screen, you should have the option to modify any scheduled cron job.

sorry to make this topic reappear but i still can't find a way to see the cron.daily jobs in Scheduled Cron Jobs.

I have the latest Webmin and when i go to Scheduled Cron Jobs i can see all the jobs in the Cron and all the jobs in /etc/cron.d but not the jobs in /etc/cron.daily

I presume it is because there is /etc/cron.d in the Path to extra cron files directory configuration But is it possible to add /etc/cron/daily as well ?

Hmm, they do show in there for me by default, I didn't need to enable anything.

Which distro/version are you using?

I use CentOS Linux 6.4 with virtualmin 4.02GPL

And that's strange, i have tried to put /etc/cron.daily instead of /etc/cron.d in the extra path configuration, and they still did not show .. i'm sure i have scheduled jobs in /etc/cron.daily and they work..

I have the same problem on Centos 6.8 with latest Webmin: on Scheduled Cron Jobs page I don't see /etc/cron.daily/* cron jobs, but they are exist and work ok as I see in cron logs. Found same problem on separate forum with no solution: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-server-73/cron-daily-missi... I assume that problem can be only with Centos. Please check it.

I'm having the same issue on centos 7. cron.daily cron jobs do not show up in cron section, even when logging in as root. Any updates?

Same problem here. I think it's a bug, as the jobs in cron.daily are running fine. They just don't show up in Webmin. I'm guessing the issue is that Webmin isn't scanning the cron.daily directory and therefore isn't showing any jobs in there?

Any chance of a fix?
