Automatic cron jobs in yii2

I was reading this wiki article about implementing cron in yii2.

I have 2 questions:

  1. How can I make cron task that will execute automatically at certain period every day. For example I want to send emails to site clients at 6AM every day.

  2. What if I want to create cron job that will do some database operations at certain time every day. For example I want to run few SQL queries to pick up some information from some tables and then based on those infos update some other table. Is this possible ?

  1. You make cron jobs on your server operating system. The cron jobs should be set to run your PHP script at some appointed time(s).

  2. Yes, it is possible. I think the easiest way is to create a console command.

Once completed set your cron job to run your console command at the time you specify
