Hello everybody,

Firts happy new yaer to you all. :) I have a question about something that has not directly something to do with PHP, but maybe someone know how I can do it.

I have to let a PHP script run every day or hour. I will explain wath I meen:

I have a mysql db with customer data in it. When a user reaces a maximum of data they need to recieve an e-mail with that information in it. The problem is that the data is not inserted with applications or script running on my server but they use there own. I ony store there data. Now I have to run a script every day mannuly.

I hope someone could help me with this big problem?



P.S. Sorry for my terribly bad english today, maybe it have some thing to do with the new year! :oops:
