  • Setting a cgi script to run at time intervals

    I would like to have a cgi script automatically run say every 15 minutes without having to access it remotely. In other words, if the time is right, the server hosting the cgi script will run it.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    You need to have "cron" services.

    If you have your own server, it's easy.

    If you have your scripts on a webhost, most don't allow
    the use of CRON. You'll have to subscribe to a service
    that will execute your scripts.

    example: http://www.cronservices.com

    If you have a site that is visited regularily, you could
    use the site itself (each time the page is visited) to
    execute a cgi script. Pretty much what a site counter
    does. If the 15 minutes is critical, then you need to do
    it with CRON.
