Sending E-Mail hourly.

Postby monkquito » Tue Apr 22, 2008 12:05 pm

Hello,

Does anyone have any suggestion to write a script where e-mails can be sent every hour from the server?

Cheers
Garry

Need more info.

What kind of email:
One with server status?
One with users registered in the last hour?
A Server backup?

It is however possible to run scripts at time intervals by using "cron jobs" (on a linux server).

If you have a control panel for your server (usually is you use shared hosting) this is usually easy to setup.
If it's a dedicated server then you would have to findout how to set cron jobs on your server using command lines.

On windows it would be done a different way and i'm afraid i can't help their.
