shell script using /etc/cron.hourly to execute cron.php file?


I have a website I am hosting on my local server. It has some statistics functions that need to be updated. I want to use the /etc/cron.hourly file for this purpose.

The website file that does this is called /opt/ezpublish/sites/default/cron.php.

The redhat FAQ says, "All the sysadmin needs to do is drop a shell script or a link to an executable in one of the directories [referring to /etc/cron.hourly] and it will automatically be run at the appropriate time." Can anyone point me to a resource that would help me write this file?

In this case you need PHP installed as binary (CGI) and add something like
Code:
#!/usr/bin/php -q
To your php script.

So to compile PHP for that purpose for instance do
Code:
#!/bin/bash

cp php*.tar.bz2 /usr/src
cd /usr/src
bzip2 -dc php*.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
cd php*
./configure \
	--prefix=/tmp/php \
	--enable-ftp \
	--enable-static \
	--enable-tokenizer \
	--disable-xml \
	--without-pear \
	--with-mysql=/usr \
	--with-config-file-path=/etc \
make
make install
cp php.ini-dist /etc/php.ini
strip /tmp/php/bin/php
mv /tmp/php/bin/php /usr/bin
rm -r /tmp/php /usr/src/php*
You might need to change the variable max_execution_time in /etc/php.ini afterwards (if it's > 30 secs).

Example script:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/php -q
<?php
print "hello world\n";
?>
Remember the php script needs execution rights ... so chmod +x <filename>

The plural of "code" is "code".
