I have a question...this actually a little backward from what most people want.
I want to have a PHP script trigger a Cron job(PHP DB backup script) to execute when certain DB changes take place. The reason I want it to occur like this is, I want this process to occur in the background and not affect the user as DB dumps may cause the browser to time out.
I have a cron job set to automatically execute a PHP script daily to backup/replace a mysql dump file, I want to be able to execute this cron programmatically from the site.
Anyone ever do this or is it even possible? Thanks in advance for any insight.
