    I have to set up some cron jobs but I don't know anything about them, is there a place that someone knows of where i can learn about them? or tell me how to do them?

    another question, i'm also trying to set up a search for my site...how do u split up a sting so you can search for each individual word? for example if someone does a query for "billy boy", how do i split up the string so it can search for both words, "billy" and "boy", instead of just "billy boy"?

    thanks in advance...

    As far as the cron jobs, I can't point you anywhere specific, but I do remember setting up cron jobs at my old college system on linux, and I knew nothing about them then either.

    Telnet into your server, run
    >man cron

    and look over that information, you should be able to piece it together from there.

    You may see those answers searching for "cron job" in the php search.
