stevesh Posted February 7, 2004 Share Posted February 7, 2004 I'm installing a web-based calendar program on my site from: http://webcalendar.sourceforge.net The section of the program docs dealing with email reminders says this: "PHP does not come with a utility for executing time-based jobs. So, in order to check periodically for email reminders, a shell script was written in PHP. You will need two things to get this working: You should have a version of PHP built as a CGI (so that you can run php from the command line). This does not mean you must build all of PHP as a CGI. You can still build PHP as a module for your web server and then build the CGI-based PHP later. Note: Many Linux distributions and some Windows LAMP packages come with the PHP built for CGI. You must setup cron (on Linux/UNIX) or something like cron for Windows to run the send_reminders.php script periodically. Building PHP as a CGI is outside the scope of these instructions. But, if you read the PHP instructions, you'll see that the default build settings will build the CGI-based PHP. If you really can't do this (perhaps you don't have permission to install anything new on the system), skip down a couple of paragraphs to an alternate solution that does not require PHP CGI." Does anyone know if the PHP build on TCH meets these specs? Thanks. Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
