Guys,

I’ve got a PHP question for you all which i’m hoping someone could shed some light on…

I’ve built a user management system and the client now wants an automated email sent exactly one year after a user has been registered…

This means that the server has to run this script once a day on its own.. how do you do this, i’ve literally got no idea…

Any help appreciated :)

Cheers,

Matt / MSFX

You can setup an cron job: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron You can change the settings to make it run your script everyday.
