    1) find where your php interpreter resides

    $ which php

    2) Add the following line to begin of you php script:

    #!/usr/local/bin/php -q

    3) make you php script executable

    $chmod 755 /path/to/your/script.php

    4) Make sure you script works properly by trying to start it from the command line

    $ /path/to/your/script.php

    <script output here>

    5) add command line to your crontab

    $ crontab -e

    For example, to start script every day at 5:00:

    0 5 * * * /path/to/your/script.php

    Thanks defencer,

    Can you tell me what this does:


    when i access this file from http it works fine, but from shell i get these errors.

    /home/httpd/vhosts/site/httpdocs/ts/page.php: ?: No such file or directory
    /home/httpd/vhosts/site/httpdocs/ts/page.php: line 3: syntax error near unexpected token `set_time_limit(0)'
    /home/httpd/vhosts/site/httpdocs/ts/page.php: line 3: `set_time_limit(0);'

    ahh i think it was because i added the code inside the <?

    #!/usr/local/bin/php -q
    echo "hello";


    i am getting this error in my actual file which works great through http, but not thorough shell.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: iconv() in /home/httpd/vhosts/site/httpdocs/tb/file.php on line 237

    $xml = iconv("ISO-8859-1", "UTF-8",$xml);

    Are you running windows or linux? It makes a difference. This is a Windows forum and it looks like you are talking about Linux
