cronjob php script

i have a php script that needs to be run once every 24 hours. i know how to create cronjob scrpits. but how do i do it for a php file? because normaly dont you need php files to be accesed through the webserver(apache) for them to run?

btw the file is located in a directory not online. and id like to keep it that way if possible just for general security reasons.

Not necessarily. Many PHP scripts do need to be run by the web server, but it depends on the details of the script.

If you have the command-line PHP interpreter installed (it may or may not be packaged with the Apache module), then you can run a script from the command line like this:
php /path/to/yourscript.php
