Hey, if you don't have access to CRON, you could try and include the page in
your index.php.
Set it so it only runs once though, per day.  That means that as soon as
someone visits your site they activate it for that day.  It'd only work if
you had the traffic though.

Just an idea.

Then again, I'm having one of those days....

Ignore me...

This have been very much discussed in this list, and the only logical
way of doing this through PHP would be to have a script that reads the
actual date of the server's system once a day, but that would be just
impossible without having that script (page) reloaded at least once a
day.

I think there are two way of doing this. First, would be to setup a cron
job under unix (which I don't know so I'm guessing here) and second,
which is the easiest, would be to have that script in a page with
refreshing META tags, so it would refresh itself every 24 or 12 hours.

Does this make any sense? C.
