Well, what you're looking at here requires more than just PHP. You can make a script that sends the reminders (without knowing your app/database, we'd have no way of showing you how to do this), but you'll also need to set the system to automatically run your script.

If you have *nix-based hosting, you'll have to use the crontab. There are many guides about it on google.
If you have Windows-based hosting, you'll have to use the system task configuration (or something like that...I'm not a Windows user)

Hey Jerail,
Thanks for your reply... I have the *nix-based hosting.
Could you please guide me on how to send a reminder email (which the email is taken from the database).
