The other replies you received are correct - but if you somehow DON'T have a CLI PHP (e.g. using PHP3 for some strange reason, or too lazy to upgrade), you can use the same crontab/scheduler to execute wget (recommended on *nix) or lynx (available for both Win and *nix) to retrieve the actual page via HTTP.

Dear all
I just wonder did anyone know if php can act as a scheduler rather than
execute script manually?
i want to set a schedule for php to run certain script at specify time, to
what i understood in php is : the script can only be process when a homepage
had been execute. but i want the script to be excute even no one open a
homepage contain php script in it!

is there anyway i can do that?
