1.0 Introduction

PHP Crontab provides a simple way to register multiple PHP jobs to execute at certain times. Simply set up a regular crontab to hit the script and add as many jobs as you need to.

PHP Crontab supports (almost) the entire crontab expression format syntax. Each Job can have multiple expressions and trigger multiple callbacks.

Cron expression format:

minute | hour | day of month | month | day of week | year (optional)

Field formats:

  • = All values / = Range increment , = List values
  • = Range

Currently only the L keyword is supported for Day of month, to identify the last day of the month. W, # and L (for day of week) are currently NOT supported.

2.0 Examples

$crontab = new \HybridLogic\Cron\Crontab;

$crontab->add_job(
    \HybridLogic\Cron\Job::factory('test')
        ->on('* * * * *')
        ->trigger(function(){
            echo "test run\n";
        })
    );

$count = $crontab->run();
echo "Executed $count job(s)";
