Use curl to load a page every 5 seconds
Hello, thanks for taking the time to read my post.
I am new to Linux. My distro is Ubuntu server 9.04 (no gui).
I have a php file that updates images when it runs. I want to create a script to do this with curl.
I have tested and using curl gives me the desired update, but I don't know how to script this so that I don't have to run it manually from the cli.
I was using vb script and ie to do this on win2k3, but ie kills the cpu, and curl barley raises cpu usage so it would be great if I could script curl to load this page every 5 seconds. Will vb script work on Ubuntu? If there is a script genius reading who knows how to set this up please share, I will be very grateful.
Also, I know this is not the right way to do this, but it is the only way possible for now.
