Timed Scripts

Recommended Posts

I know this is a perfect job for cron however my ISP doesn't want to allow cron operations. So now to my problem. I would like to execute a script xxxx.php every xx number of minutes. I've tried embedding the script as a refresh function in an html form however this doesn't work all the time since I already use this operation to display a database table created by the script I want to execute. Is there a way I can create a script to do what I just explained.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Without a cron job, not really.  The only other way would be to open a browser on a computer and leave it open, using a Javascript snippet to either reload the page every x minutes or call an AJAX script.
