Hello,

I have a PHP script that I would like executed at 8:00AM every morning.  However, I don't want anyone to have to execute this script manually by clicking on a link or visiting the page which would run the script.

Is it possible to run this script at 8AM each day without the need for some physical action to do so?

Cheers!

I assume that by using the scheduled task within windows that my PC would have to be logged on? I would like this to happen even if I am away from the office.

Is there a server side solution to this?
you set the scheduled task up on the server which has to always be on.
You set up this task on the server only...
