I need to run a php file with cron and the log - not so difficult.

But my host has a restriction that requires the  use of nice with an increment of 10 as well.

my crontab so far reads :

32 * * * *  lynx -dump http://www.ouhypo.org/dev/site_monitor.php >/usr/home/copycat/cronlogs/sitemonitor.log

do i add the nice line /usr/bin/nice - n 10  between the cron times and the lynx command?
