View Full Version : Seeking alternatives for Crone Jobs

26 Jul 2005, 03:54 AM
I have a site in PHP on IIS 6 and need some sort of scheduling

functionality for sending emails via php scripts, running scripts on

database etc.

I worked a bit with Crone Jobs for this however I was wondering if there

is something better then that. Site is developed in PHP / MySQL and

running on Windows 2003 with IIS 6.

Any help!

Cron jobs are a linux function. Since your using windows, you must be using something that mimics cron jobs rather than using actuall cron jobs themselves. So in a sense, you are using the alternative already.
