I need to run a script on a regular basis. It has to be compatible with php. Are there any solutions available for this? I have investigated cron, but haven't used it.
I will be using this to run a script that looks for a field in a mysql table and when that field is larger than another field, delete the row. (I am expiring user accounts.) I am completely unfamiliar with maintenance task scheduling like this. I primarily develop under windows, but my production server is LAMP.
