need help with setting up a cron
I'm very much a Linux newbie. I have a hosting account where I'm able to use cpanel which allows you to set up a cron within the cpanel web interface.
I've watched the flash tutorial the host has and I understand that you enter a Unix command to be run at intervals you specify. The thing being is that I was under the impression that you were able to specify a php script to run at certain intervals (as opposed to a command). This is what I want to do ......ie. run scripts that update my database etc.
Can anyone advise me further on how I would achieve this. eg is there a linux command that runs my php script.
