Command to run a PHP Script via Cron

If you want to run a PHP script via cron, you would do the following command:

/hsphere/shared/php5/bin/php-cli ~/cronfile.php 

PHP 5.3:
/hsphere/shared/php53/bin/php-cli ~/cronfile.php

PHP 5.4
/hsphere/shared/php54/bin/php-cli ~/cronfile.php

PHP 5.5
/hsphere/shared/php55/bin/php-cli ~/cronfile.php

NOTE: ~/ puts you in to your user directory, the one that holds all your domain directories.  So, you would simply add to ~/ to get the path to the file you need to run
