Can somebody help me get my lingo and terms correct?
I have a website hosted on Godaddy.com (please no criticisms, I know it's not the best. It's temporary). It the most basic hosting option.
I need to run a nightly script at a specific time. I know and use php, mysql and html. The script will retrieve data from my db, so that I can make changes, and then update with the new data.
I think that what I want to do is write a python script?? And then find out 'if I can' and 'how to' get it onto my host server??
I have tried to Google, but the problem is that I don't know the proper terms to ask. So far I seem to get wrong results.
What I am asking for is somebody to point me in the right direction. Tell me exactly what it is I am asking for, so I can take it to Godaddy and ask them if they offer that.
If they don't, if you know of a hosting company that does, I will accept suggestions.
thanks in advance,
