Assuming that you're php is installed as /bin/php and the script file is "myscript.php", you would edit the crontab by typing crontab -e, then add a line that looks like:

0 13 * * 1,2,3,4,5,6 /bin/php myscript.php

Where the first parameter is the number of minutes after the hour, the second is the hour, the third is the day of the month, the fourth is the month, and the fifth is the day of the week (0-6, 0=Sunday).  Hope this helps.

you need do have the exact url to that script.
for example, http://www.servername.com/script.php

now you set up a cron job like this:

0 13 * * * lynx --dump http://www.servername.com/script.php >/dev/null

if that script needs parameters, change the URL accordingly.
