Response to: Automatic PHP tasks

I found a simple solution. Add a scheduled task to your /etc/crontab file and use the curl command to excute any PHP script on your site. Example:


0 0 * * * * curl http://www.yoursite.com/yourscript.php


... then execute this in the terminal:


crontab crontab

    The crontab line should show a correct permission:

    0 0 * * * root curl http://www.yoursite.com/yourscript.php
