http://serverfault.com – I have a cron that checks if there are pending mails to be sent each minute: */1 * * * * /usr/bin/curl http://localhost/path/application.php >> /var/log/application.log This script is working for years without problems. Yesterday I added a echo in the first line of the application.php file and got this log: 10:34:05 Launching application... 10:34:17 Launching application... 10:34:44 Launching application... 10:35:07 Launching application... 10:35:18 Launching application... 10:35:43 Launching application... 10:35:58 Launching application... .... It is, the script is launched 3/4 ti (HowTos)
