    Which version of WPRobot are you using and does your hosting meet the requirements for it?

    create a file called php.php and put these lines into it:
    Code:
    <?
    echo phpinfo();
    ?>
    
    run the file and you should see the settings.
    Then, for cron jobs, use a service like: http://www.setcronjob.com/

    No I believe it's tied into wordpress's cron system, which means you do need visitors.

    It doesn't need normal unix cronjobs; it uses wp-cron.php which is part of the base Wordpress install.
