    Hi everyone,

    Can anybody tell me how to start a certain proces when Apache starts?

    For example. I have a Perl-script that writes a file every 5 minutes.

    How do I start this script?

    All help is welcome.

    Thanks Bas,

    Use cron. It has nothing to do with Apache process at all.

    Thanx freebsd,

    I even found crons for NT and Mac.

    Apache is just a testcase for me right now. I need to write a Perl-script that runs on every system and does something, like writing a file, every 5 mins. This seems to work now.

    Bas
