    Its not always that straight forward, depending on the server build the command to call may be different.

    The server my sites are on at present refused to work with anything other than a wget

    There is none - just the name of the script file. Assuming your script file is named cronjob.php, the command is

    cronjob.php

    Nothing more than that.

    If you're using Cpanel, then it is pretty much plug and play. You just need to specify time intervals and the file to execute.

    @chanif.alfath - nice beginner tut on creating a cron file
