either you make a pseudo cronjob with php, or a real cronjob serverside.
Cron job will call the script which will send emails and stuff you need to do.

For pseudo cronjobs, check how phpBB for isntance implemented it for prunning

as in go in to www.phpbb.com, download latest version and look around.
If you dont know anything about PHP, start off with basics before you go into more advanced tasks.
