Thank You Neil ! So if I write in a command like C:\php\php.exe C:\path\to\script.php in a batch file, and have another batch file to run it at given time frames, then the PHP file would make the updates and perform the functionalities that its required to do, is it? coz what I have on my mind is that the tasks are run and the functions are performed even if theres no one to run in the command, that can be done right?
