you can just use sleep(6*60*60)

and then put it in a while loop.

what are you using to update the database....is it a perl script that needs to be run?

while(1)
{
#execute your action here
#like
#do update.pl;

sleep(6*60*60);
}

ps the process will run endlessly, you can kill it when your done, or make a switch file that tells it to be either on or off.
