My crontab is crashing when I run a script that insert alot of lines on MySQL Database, but when I run a script that inser few lines it run properly, is there some configuration file of cron? Maybe some config about use of memory.

Does this only happen when you run it in crontab, or in a shell too? How far does it get before the crash. Any additional information you can provide will help diagnosis. – Paul Jan 30 '12 at 12:26
if you dont need transaction you could try adding them with INSERT DELAYED. – D.Iankov Sep 13 '12 at 18:39
