Hi My ISP doesn't allow me to use the system command or CRON jobs, I need a tutorial that will create a back up script for the past 7 days on a page load probably that will run once a day if a particular page is visited does anybody know of such a tutorial?

Most hosts will provide a contained CRON or schedule task that you can hammer out.

If that is 100% not an option you can create a scheduled task on your own machine to call a PHP script once a day and run your script.

Other than doing one of those two there is nothing I know that will solve this problem for you.

BTW - Which host is this so I can avoid them.

its streamline.net

They have given me shh. access but apparently they don't allow cron jobs or the use of system command.
