Need script that executes periodically (PHP)


New Member
I would need a script (written in PHP) that once in a day does a look-up in a MySql database and depending on the results, sends an email to some persons.

Thanks alot,
don't bump it back to the top please. obviously no one knows what the hell you're talking about, or else doesn't know of any sort of script, or else they wouldv'e answered you the first time around.
Ok, thanks anyway...

In the meanwhile i found what i was looking for on another board.

For those that dont know what i was talking about:

On Unix you can use "cron jobs" using a crontab file. Its kind of a task scheduler.
You will be able to execute CGI scripts automatically/periodically without starting it manually via a web browser.

Make a search on words like cron, php, execute, automatic... on google.com f.ex. and you will find lots of info.
