currently, the company i work for has php scripts setup that update our websites inventory database using our local internal database and a few other things that run automated on a scheduled basis.

the current way we have it setup is a local machine has the URLs scheduled for launch in the windows scheduled tasks. It launches the webpages at whatever time they need launched, then at 11:59 PM i have a batch file that kills all open IE windows.

is there a more efficient way to have these tasks automatically run, or are we doing it correctly? thanks..

You can run the php files through the scheduler directly using php.exe on windows, or php on linux.
