but what if i dont know the path, the site is hosted on a remote server at a hosting company, and i dont really have alot of faith in the man that runs the place to put the script in there for me ----- Original Message ----- From: "Carlos Costa Portela" <ccosta at servidores.net> To: <thelist at lists.evolt.org> Sent: Saturday, July 19, 2003 4:18 PM Subject: Re: [thelist] php timer You can do that in php, of course, if you have php installed so you can run it from command line. Use cron to get what you want. Something like this (crontab entry): 30 15 * * * /usr/local/bin/php myscript.php where myscript.php is your php script, and /usr/local/bin is the path to your php executable. The script will be executed at 15:30 everyday Hope this helps, Carlos.
