OK, I'm trying to set up a way to parse files from a different website every so often (like once every 1-5 minutes, depending on how the slow the processing makes the server), so I'm guessing I would need a Cron job to process the information for when nobody is online, unless I leave my computer online and do a meta refresh every 5 minutes, which I'm not able to do since I'm not the person who pays for the server.
So I have two questions. First, are Cron jobs possible in XAMPP? I know that not having my server up since I'm not leaving the computer on would prevent the Cron jobs from running when I'm not on the computer, but at least I can experiment for when I put my site on my live server. If som, can someone send me to a tutorial describing how to do them?
