    Hello everyone,
    I have two lines that appear when I run a crontab edition. These are:
    * * * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/server.sh 2>&1 | while read line; do echo `/bin/date` "$line" >> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log; done
    * * * * * /usr/local/ispconfig/server/cron.sh 2>&1 | while read line; do echo `/bin/date` "$line" >> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log; done
    Could you explain to me what they are for?
    Are they primordial or just optional?

    They are not optional. I'm not sure what you mean by primordial in this context. Be as it may, those two lines in cron are needed, otherwise ISPConfig stops working.
    If you want to know what they do, read the script files.
