I’m green at php AND DH server admin. My question is:
How would you solve the need to have a time scheduled (market hours in this case) PHP program run on the server? This would need to start without intervention; read a file; do calculations; write a new file. A similar one would send an email with the file attached. It would terminate when finished; and write to a log on start, error, finish.
I am able to do all this when starting the app from a browser, but can’t figure out how to schedule it to happen on a schedule.
If it was my server, perhaps I could run a cron job (if I knew how ).
Ideas? Guidance? Pointer to documentation on DH?
