    Hi I have a web host not allowing a php script to run on there server as it has to execute a file (The Script is a ventrilo voice chat server stats checker)

    I have setup a basic web host from my home computer that is on 24/7 to run this script but now trying to get cpanel cron to run this remote script every 15 minutes.

    Can anyone give me a hand is it possible to execute a remote script like this ?

    Hello :)

    Is there a specific reason you would want the cron job configured on the cPanel server? You could simply setup the cron job on the remote server. Otherwise, you could configure the cron job to access the script using a command such as:

    lynx -dump
    Thank you.
