You need to use cron for the automatic updates to work. There are two ways you can set it up:

1. Set cron to run rss2sql at a short interval (like 1 minute), and then set the interval setting in rss2sql to something bigger (like 1 hour). This will make the updates happen once an hour.

2. Set cron to run rss2sql at a long interval (like 1 hour), and then set the interval setting in rss2sql to something short (like 1 minute). This too will make the updates happen once an hour.

It seems a bit redundant, but some people who aren't able to control things with a program like cron need the interval setting in rss2html to limit how often rss2sql runs.

In your case, it doesn't really matter which way you go.

I have set up rss2sql to update every 1 hour (3600 min) via the admin panel. Does this update the database by automatically running rss2sql.php? If so, is there any reason for me to setup a cron job via my host provider? Please explain?
