You probably need to set the path to your PHP binary in crontab.
Alternatively (this is probs a better way), wrap the whole lot up in a simple
shell script and get cron to run the shell script.
It's easier than it sounds...
php < myscript.php > /dev/null
(also, I tend not to have PHP direct output to /dev/null, but to configure
cron not to send emails on completion - that way you get the info when you
run the script on the command line but dont get overrun with pointless emails)
Hope that helps :)
