Help with automated tasks (cron)





Dougie1
Well I would like a script to be loaded every couple of minutes. I have tried ignoring user abort and sleeping but this does not work as it seems to stop when the site goes down.

Is there any sites which can visit the page every few minutes? Or is there another way to do this? Thanks.

If you're on Frihost server 2, do this:
- Go to your Control Panel, log in, click Cronjobs.
- Fill in when you want to run the script. For command, fill in the following:
Code:
/usr/local/bin/php -f "/home/YOURUSERNAME/PATH/TO/SCRIPT.php"

Unfortunately the host I am using does not have direct admin or cPanel, it has Layered Panel.

Does it have any other way to set cronjobs?
If not, this depends a lot on what it does support. Does it support shell access for example?

Thanks very much for the help. I have just created a script which uses cURL to load the page which I want loaded from the other server on my frihost server and am loading it with the cron tasks. Thanks Very Happy
