How to set up a cron job

Automating tasks on your server is done via cron jobs. For example, say you have a php file that needs to be run every day at 6am that performs a function such as making a backup of a file or emailing you a set of statistics, or maybe just a reminder to a list of email subscribers: cron jobs are the instructions that tell your server to runs something on a regular timed interval.
