PhP call on conditions

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

Iam wondering if there is any method to do the following:
1) When a file is created in a directory in local computer.
2) When the mysql date stored in the DB approaches the current date and
For the above two conditions I would like to call a php file.

Its not good to have the php code running in the background and waiting
for the above 2 events.

Please do suggest other methods to achieve the above.

Think about it - unless there's something monitoring for these conditions, how  
do you expect to be able to start some PHP code when they occur?

There isn't anything in Unix which will do it.  Same with MySQL.  You'll need to  
create something.  It can either be a program which runs constantly in the  
background, or (my suggestion) a cron job you kick off every so often to look  
for these conditions.
