  Assuming you just need to hit a certain URL periodically you just need
  to use curl or similar. There's no need to get a browser involved.

What about using wget or its Windows equivalent? The tool is built for
requesting things from a command line, so is very easy to plug into a
bash or batch script.

instead of loading the php.exe, load FF and point to the script, note that
this will open a browser window and you will need to close that in order to
keep the resources on the server from being exhausted due to many windows
being opened.
