Automated Processes

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of question, but I am looking for a way to handle automated processes. By automated I mean, everyday at 6pm, the site sends you an email reminder to feed your dog. I'm not sure if this should be done with something like Apache, or if it is possible using just PHP.

Thanks in advance for any input.


Is your site on shared host?
If so, it should provide functionality related to cron jobs (scheduled tasks in Windows) (in my case it is called exactly 'Cron jobs').
You sould be able to set a job runing at desired time and frequency. This can be calling a php script doing things you want.

Thanks a lot for your replies. Definitely a good jumping point.
