chron setup problems...

I am attempting to setup a chron job for a .php script I’ve installed.

Can’t figure out how to do this.

How do I know …

  1. Which shell to use (my script install instructions don’t say)?

  2. What’s the path (my install instructions gave me this set of instrictions:

[SIZE=2]is this the path? [/SIZE][SIZE=2]"lynx > /dev/null -dump [/SIZE][SIZE=2]<A href=""">[/SIZE][SIZE=2]" [/SIZE] [SIZE=2]3) I can figure out the time settings.[/SIZE] [SIZE=2]4) What's the script? Is it this also... [/SIZE][SIZE=2]"lynx > /dev/null -dump http:[/SIZE][SIZE=2]//[/SIZE]"

Please help!


You should be able to run it directly if you chmod for +x

Or you can just do

/usr/bin/php -q /path/to/script.php
