Absolutely. You've asked it to run at 50 minutes past every hour on
the 25th of the month. If you only want it to run at 50 minutes past
a specific hour on the 25th, change it to something like:
50 23 25 * * /usr/local/apache/conf/rc.monthly
...which would mean at 23:50 on the 25th.
The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.
