    cron job hell

    I've just spent the past 3 hours trying to get this thing to work and I'm about to lose it. I just upgraded to a virtual hosting plan with GoDaddy, and becuase I don't want to pay for the extra help, they won't give me any. On top of that their help site talks nothing about cron jobs and they offer up no help guides (except to set up your server).

    I'm trying to run a php script using an Apache server. My test script is a simple mysql insert command, but everything fails. I've tried the following with the respective errors:

    Added #!/usr/bin/php on my scripts, got permission denied
    Changed permissions to allow executables, got line by line errors with php

    Tried adding php in front of my path, ton of errors

    Tried adding /usr/bin/php in front of my path, ton of errors

    Added lynx -dump http://sitepath, got a mysql error
    I fixed the problem and now my errors are blank, still not inputing the info into the database.

    I don't use a command line for my inputs. I use GoDaddy's simple control panel. I'm beyond frustrated. Can anyone lend some assistance?
