Automating WITHOUT CRON!
Posted 24 July 2006 - 04:23 PM
I need to run a script every day at 0:00 but the server i need to setup the script on does not support CRON.
Is there a way I can have this script run every day at 0:00?? I thought about using some of the time functions. Run the script once to start it off, and then it can check the time every minute until it finds 0:00. But the problem Im facing is how do i get the script to continue to run even when the browser closes?
Any ideas people?

Otherwise, your kinda stuck. If its a high traffic site you could have each page check the time and if its near to 0:00 you could run the script, but if you dont get any hits around that time, well, the script wont run.
This really is a server issue... not much php can do.

look for a 3rd part cron or scedilar.

Yes. You'd need to make the script publicly accessible.
how about setting up a cron from a different server to run the script? will that work?
