Run PHP each 5th min or so

#1

Hi,
I need some help with getting a php script run each 5th min or so.

I use this script for the game Battlefield 2 to log hash keys so that we can ban players them from our server if they break a rule and left the server before we were able to login to the control panel and see them on the list.

The PHP script is working fine, but I need something that will run it if that is possible.

Thank you,

You can use cron to run periodic jobs. Here is the DreamHost wiki article on using cron at DreamHost.

BTW, make sure you don’t get in trouble for running a persistent game process on a shared hosting account.

Thanks, will try it now :slight_smile:

And it works almost like a forum that is getting new users.
But thanks for the heads up :slight_smile:
