Well first lets keep in mind the following command:

php /home/[B]????????[/B]/public_html/ad/view.php

Now where the question marks are you need to place in your cpanel username. So if for example to log into your admin you go to www.yoursite.com/cpanel then the username you place in that login box is what goes into the place of those question marks.

Thanks for your answers, it seems my cron job its running but i am not really sure,
I want to know the kind of email i will recieve, so as to know that the page in question its running?
becourse at the moment right now i am not getting any error message, just that the mail i recieved was the full code of my page, with the exception of the 'php code' and 'mysql query' simillar to when a script page runs on the browser we only see the 'html'

does this means that my page is now running?

I was expecting a message like:
view.php runs at 1:00am or so, pls pardon me if i am writing Gabage

tell me how the response message looks like?

Well yes when receiving emails for what happened or output during a cron job via email, it is expected that html code will be displayed as plain text in the email. Also if you received an email about the cron job at the time you wish the success your complete. If however you did not receive an email there is a possibility that you needed to fill in the email field in simple mode of cron jobs section of the cpanel which by the looks of it you've already done.

That was wonderful, thanks so much for your assistance, i checked the response i needed when the page runs, it was ok, exactly the way i want it,
This was what i use and it works well,

php -f /home/????????/public_html/ad/view.php

any newbie like me on cron job can always use this.

but i figure out that it varies in different host or cPanal. well thanks so much, you've been wonderful.
