Hello XtremeCookiez, and thanks for your question.

You would call PHP directly and then specify the location of the PHP script that you'd like to have your cron job run.

It would look something like this:

php -q /home/username/public_html/scriptName.php

For a more in-depth look at cron jobs please review our guide on how to run a cron job.

If you had any other question at all, please let us know.
