Any thoughts on the most efficient Cron command to call a php script? Basically, I want to trigger a page to run the script, so I'm currently using Lynx after I was worried my previous command (wget -O - -q -t 1 http://www.example.com/cron.php) was creating extra files in some dark corner of my server. It was also also suggested curl --silent --compressed might do the trick, but I'm wondering if anyone has guidance in terms of best practices? Was wget really populating my server with unccessary files, or am I misreading the log files?
