Hello my php buddies

Just looking for some advice from seasoned phpers like yourselves.

I am just starting messing with CRON.  I can set up a cron job to run a php
script each hour, but I have several web sites on one server that may need a
script running.

I was contemplating running one "manager" script each hour that would check
a mysql table and where necessary run one of a range of possible scripts,
probably one at a time to spread any load.

1. Is this the best way of doing this?

  If yes, what fields do you recommend?  (id, ref, scriptURL, timestamp,

Is it worth creating a log file to keep an eye on what and when scripts have

Any other advice welcomed.
