On a site I'm building, on the first page there is a "Featured Member Of The Day!" This is set up through a php script to randomly selects a new member business every 24 hours from the MySQL DB... We've got this all working with the MySQL DB and the tables we've set up. Here's my problem or question......
I would like to automatically have the same "featured Business of the day" notified by an email that they are that day's featured business! This needs to be automatic and happen at the start of each day exactly when they are made that day's featured business!...
Though I have been told that this can be "easily" done, I have not been able to find anything or scripts that would enable this. Any Help there???
Some sites are suggesting "CRON" and say it's installed on most Linux servers, and my host server has a version of that, but I am still at a loss for the php script.
I have missed my deadline for this client for yesterday already... So any help or direction you could point me in would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
