Hello all.

I have a script that I would like to run every few minutes or so. I've been 
trying to get it running repetitively with minicron, but I believe that I'm 
doing something wrong, because it does not get called at the interval I 
specfied.

For example, the script I want to call is called "keepalive.php". I have put 
it in the /usr/local/www/ folder. It gets called once after bootup (which 
works fine), and the I use the line:
 exec("/usr/local/bin/minicron $interval {$g['varrun_path']}/minicron.cp.pid 
" .
  "/usr/local/www/keepalive.php");
(where $interval has been set to 300, 120, 60.... without success).

CAn anyone tell if I'm doing something wrong. Has anybody else used Manuel's 
minicron to accomplish something successfully??

Thanks,

Ben Z
