DevShed.com:
PHP Best Methods for Running Scheduled Jobs
June 28, 2012 @ 11:01:49

On DevShed.com today there's a new article posted looking at methods for running scheduled jobs based on responses to this forum post.

I have a webpage form that requires a date and time to be submitted. When it's submitted I need the back-end to run a script at the time and date specified. Have you ever needed to do something like this?

Some recommendations already posted include:

  • The UNIX "at" command
  • Setting up a queue system to manage the processes (using something similar to Gearman
  • Setting up a cron job to handle the periodic execution of the script.
