Hi :)

I know how to do the whole time setup * * * * * thing, and cronjobs are already enabled on my server. (I already have some that backup my DBs automatically every night).

But!  Let's say I wanted to run /home/user/public/script.php in a cronjob. Assuming I wanted the time to be * * * * * ... what would my exact command line be? I'd like to NOT use a .sh file if possible, as I'm not familiar with those. Thanks :)

1) make sure that you have

#!/path-to/php

as the FIRST line of your /home/user/public/script.php

and then make the crontab looks like:

* * * * * /home/user/public/script.php  >/dev/null 2>&1

please do the followings to modify the crontab:
EDITOR=vi
export EDITOR
crontab -e

put your cron record in and save it.
