Use crontab: And set it to 30 minutes, and to all the other fields enter *

Well, of course enter the command in the command field :)

Under minute, you should do */30 to run it every 30 minutes (12:00, 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, ...). Specifying 30 will run it 30 minutes past the hour, every hour (12:30, 1:30, 2:30, ...) – Andrew M. Feb 27 '11 at 21:03
uh-oh, sure thing, thanks for the correction – addam Feb 28 '11 at 19:19
