Run program in daemon mode


I have written a small script (controls the internet with ping command).
I want this script to run in every five minutes.
My question is:
How can I run this script in daemon mode?
Or simply put infinite "while" cycle in the code, which is performing the ping command every five minutes?

Thank you!

You can use '&' in the end of your script command...
It will run in background..

for example:
./yourscript.sh &

ok thanks!
But for example, if I want to ping in every five minutes, in that case do I put the code

"ping -c 2 62.108.119.145"

or

"while true;
do
ping -c 2 62.108.119.145
done"


Thanks!
