    I joined IG game few days ago and right away I decided to create my own post scheduler because I didn't want to waste money on one. Since this forum is being quite helpfull I decided give something back. Now you are probably like "what is the catch?" There isn't one, except that you need to have your own webhost and ability to create database and cron job (I can explain all that). Reason I'm posting this is because I want to see if there are people here that actually want/need it so I don't create a tutorial and edit files(clean out my code) for nothing.

    EDIT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here are files: puu. sh/oouXg.zip (can't post actual link cause of anti spam thingy, its not letting me, just delete the space between . and s)
    Like I mentioned before, you need your own webhost account(shared will do fine) and I'll explain how to setup cron job on CPanel
    1. Create database and import ig.sql into it
    2. Unzip files and edit config.php to match your time zone and database settings
    3. Open cron.php and scroll down and find "$to = ;" and type in your email if you want the server to notify you if image failed to post. If you don't want to receive email you can just delete this line "mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);"
    3. Upload all files into your webhost
    4. Login to cpanel, find Cron Jobs(Advanced tab)
    5. In common settings set it to once per minute
    6. In command field enter "/usr/bin/php -q /home/account/somefolder/mbyanotherfolder/cron.php" (without ")
    7. Open index.php in your browser and have fun :)

    If you encounter any problems feel free to let me know and I'll see if I can help you.
    NOTE: This was my first project of this kind so there might be better ways to do this.
    Feel free to use it however you want and I hope it helps you :)

    Probably most people here will want proxy support, which is easy to add just by modifying your request() method in the Instagram.php class. Seems like this class already supports follow/unfollow/etc. Thanks for the share

    Hey thank you, I have it uploaded to my server and connected to the database and timezone edited.
    But I'm a little confused, where do the images go? I'm I suppose to post a image path, or urls in the image
    text box?

    thank you. it would be really cool if you could add a folder picker to this for the image selector. Also this would be
    great if it had proxy support, if I'm correct this will post images to my account with my server IP address that may
    cause problems without proxies.

    You are right about ip, i wouldnt suggest using this if you are making spammy accounts. I might add folder selection and proxy support in next few days when I get free time.
