what is "m" in m:/home/localhost/www/d5605/periodic/cmd.php
In many sites I have seen

/usr/local/bin/php -q m:/home/localhost/www/d5605/periodic/cmd.php

as in a cronjob.

Can you tell what is "m:" above ?

It looks like Microsoft style drive designation.

A: & B: = First and second floppy
C: = First hard drive
D: through Z: = Other hard drives or removable drives (CD/DVD/USB) or mounted shared drives from another server.

DOS/Windows don't distinguish between uppercase and lowercase so A: and a: are the same as are M: and m:. Linux/UNIX does distinguish.

Given how high the letter is (m:) I'd guess it was a shared filesystem mounted with Samba to the Linux host.

Not specifically but it's something to do with Dolphin
