Someone tell me can i run php and js code into crontab?If yes then what is easier way?

How to&Answers:

As PhantomJS, which is a JavaScript based automation framework available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, other *ix systems.

Using PhantomJS, you can do things like this:

    console.log('Loading a web page');

    var page = new WebPage();
    var url = "http://www.phantomjs.org/";

    page.open(url, function (status) {
        // perform your task once the page is ready ...

Or evaluate a page’s title:

    var page = require('webpage').create();
    page.open(url, function (status) {
        var title = page.evaluate(function () {
            return document.title;
        console.log('Page title is ' + title);

Examples from PhantomJS’ Quickstart page. You can even render a page to a PNG, JPEG or PDF using the render() method.

so in your crontab

* * * * * /usr/local/bin/phantomjs /home/user/custom.js > /dev/null 2>&1
