Schedule php script every hour, half an hour, and 15 minutes


Hello,

I have 3 different php scripts which I want to execute in my ubuntu every hour, half an hour, and every 15 minutes.
Can anybody show me how is it possible to do that?

Thank you

Every 15 minutes covers the other cases. Use cron or systemd timers.

Edit: ah, maybe you should explain yourself better. Is it:
- one script every hour
- another script every half hour
- another script every 15 minutes ?.

We are not mind readers, and you have been a member for over a decade and should know how to post.

Regardless - cron or systemd timers.

There are 3 different scripts where one of them needs to execute every hour, the other every half-hour and the last every 15 minutes.
I have heard of cron but I have never used it before and I was hoping if anyone had the kindness to give me instructions how to edit the tasks.

Thank you

Code:
man crontab
Code:
man 5 crontab
Basically - every hour:
Code:
00 * * * * /path/to/php /path/to/your/hourlyscript.php
Every 15 mins:
Code:
00,15,30,45 * * * * /path/to/php /path/to/your/15minscript.php

Alternate syntax for every N minutes (replace N with the number of minutes, 15, 30...)
Code:
*/N * * * * /path/to/php /path/to/your/Nminscript.php
