Hi All,

Using PHP and cron i want to create two scripts/cron jobs;

Script 1/Cron 1:  Cron 1 runs Script 1, which creates a the following cron job; * * * * * php /home/public_html/cron.php
Script 2/Cron 2:  Cron 2 runs Script 2, which delete all cron jobs except Cron 1 and Cron 2

Ideally I would like Script 1 to run every 28 hours, and Script 2 to run every 30 hours.

Many thanks
