Hello, just a general question here.
I have written a script to handle all incoming emails and forward them to different people. I need to set up a cron task to run the script every x seconds so that emails get sent in a timely manner.
I was planning on setting the cron task for 15 seconds but want to make sure that this shortish time period would not cause a problem. For instance hostgator states a minimum of 15 minutes in their TOS but I could not find any limitations in dreamhost documentations.
Simply, is 15 second interval cron OK? If not, what should I use?
Sorry, I’m new to cron, i knew that there were 5 time fields but I thought one was seconds. I am now seeing that there is no seconds field. I read that there are work arounds with sleep commands.
