    You can use CRON (standard on all distros - you probably allready have it)

    use "man cron" to get the manpage:

    NAME
    cron - daemon to execute scheduled commands (Vixie Cron)

    SYNOPSIS
    cron

    DESCRIPTION
    Cron should be started from /etc/rc or /etc/rc.local. It will return immediately, so you don't
    need to start it with '&'.

    Cron searches /var/spool/cron/crontabs for crontab files which are named after accounts in
    /etc/passwd; crontabs found are loaded into memory. Cron also searches for /etc/crontab and the
    files in the /etc/cron.d/ directory, which are in a different format (see crontab(5)). Cron then
    wakes up every minute, examining all stored crontabs, checking each command to see if it should be
    run in the current minute. When executing commands, any output is mailed to the owner of the
    crontab (or to the user named in the MAILTO environment variable in the crontab, if such exists).

    Additionally, cron checks each minute to see if its spool directory's modtime (or the modtime on
    /etc/crontab) has changed, and if it has, cron will then examine the modtime on all crontabs and
    reload those which have changed. Thus cron need not be restarted whenever a crontab file is modi-
    fied. Note that the Crontab(1) command updates the modtime of the spool directory whenever it
    changes a crontab.
