Yes, that will run at 6am every day, presuming of course that a blank fields translates to a "*" wildcard.

Out of curiosity, what GUI are you using to do that?

Webmin is actually pretty nice :) Only downside (if it is a downside) is you lose a lot of experience with terminal.

BTW, its avaliable also for Windows but Ive never tried it.

I use terminal a lot with it being CLI only (can never decide is a non gui server and Headless is the same thing)

 

But i use webmin to make it easy for myself

If you want to run something everyday at 6am this would be your cron

0 6 * * * /usr/bin/run.sh >/dev/null 2>&1

 

so use the gui to create it for you sure - but then take a look via crontab -l

^definitely what budman recommended -- just verify it to make sure the GUI is behaving as intended.
