Can a CRON job run a PHP script
Posted on 2010-09-14
I am wanting to take full advantage of CRON on my server as there are a lot of repetitive task I do every day that could easy be set up to do automatically. But I have not used CRON before and I have read that it can run a PHP script.
If I created a PHP script and set the trigger to be "on page load" would this be able to be run by CRON at 24 hour intervals. I am also planning to set up a trigger on the PHP script to send me an email to let me know what has been changed so I can keep track. Are there any restrictions or things I should be aware of in doing this.
Many thanks as always to the experts community. I must say that I have worked in many different areas from film, photography, design and a few others and know I am learn a little about programming and web development and PHP as well as web design and I am just amazed everyday and what a truly lovely group of human being developers and programs are. It really lovely to be a part of it. Thank you.
