I know. I read about it but I can\'t figure out how to get it to apply using myPHP. I was wondering if there were any alternatives or if someone could help me get a CRON job working with myPHP.

I\"m not familliar with myPHP, is it a stats package? Well at any rate, windows does have the Task scheduler that you can use in a similar manner to cron.

Yes, I have windows. What exactly do I have to do with the task manager (if it is the same thing that I have running my virus checker and whatnot every week)? You are being very helpful, thanks!

Basically go into the scheduler which is under the accessories|system menu and add a new entry there that calls php.exe directly like so:

 

php -q yourscript.php > scriptstatus.html

 

You need to make sure that the php.exe was installed and not just the module. Write and test yourscript.php, and make sure it works first, accessing it through your browser though.
