Here is an explanation of the crontab format.

# 1. Entry: Minute when the process will be started [0-60]
# 2. Entry: Hour when the process will be started [0-23]
# 3. Entry: Day of the month when the process will be started [1-28/29/30/31]
# 4. Entry: Month of the year when the process will be started [1-12]
# 5. Entry: Weekday when the process will be started [0-6] [0 is Sunday]
#
# all x min = */x

So according to this your 5 8 * * 6 would run 8:05 every Saturday.

 

 +---------------- minute (0 - 59)

 |  |  |  +------- month (1 - 12)
