Auto-executing php scripts
Posted 17 April 2006 - 03:37 AM
Sorry if this is a commonly addressed question
but is there way to create php script/function that will automatically edit a TXT file in the same directory at a specified time?
my use for this is that I have a webpage where it shows a bunch of threads (kind of like a bbs) and then I want to be able to insert a big horizontal break after each day, so it nicely separates each days postings
is it possible to coordinate with the server clock and at the beginning of everyday at 00:00:01 it will automatically edit that webpage and pop in the daybreak line

So yeah you got to use cron jobs or at as said above.
php works as its called, it doesnt run 24/7. So unless its being run at the time being needed it doesnt know to run
