I am developing a greeting card website with PHP. At this point in time I am able to send card for current date and time (today’s date – immediately), but I need to know if I need to send card on some other future dates/ time, what should be done, give your suggestions please. If anyone has sample source code for this, please provide me.
In some ways I agree with Argeaux however 5 minute recurring cron job is a little excessive. At maximum I would do it every hour, but I think that morning/afternoon would be more realistic or just set up a cron job to send at 9am every morning.
