Run PHP script without browser open

Recommended Posts

I already know how to make the script that would count time (using javascript) that after a period of time it increments a field in a database a certain amount, but how could I make this so a browser window doesn't have to be open to have the counter countinueing counting?

Any ideas?

you could set up a cron job.

i think. be more specific. you have a script that updates your database and you want it updated on a regular basis without any kind of user interaction? you should be able to set up a cron job in cpanel to run your script at the interval you want it to be run.

From what I gather of your post, you want to run a PHP script in the background as a cron job. Look in our tutorial section or search the web using "cron job".

FYI: PHP scripts can also be run from the command prompt.
