public_html is not exposed by the web server, it defines externally visible web space on the internal file system; this is why the URL does not work.

While lynx does provide a much nicer scriptable interface for this kind of thing, it isn't impossible to script with IE:

create a file called 'reset.vbs'

Dim shell
Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
shell.Run """C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IExplore.exe""";

and schedule it. Kind of off topic, but since you are probably not on a unix system, use task scheduler.

I don't understand the question. A friend of mine was able to do a manual reset but I don't have lynx installed on my computer so I can't do them. I can't do them from internet explorer. What do you suggest I do? This is my first web site and I have never run a cron job before.

cron changes $PATH (usually), best to always use full path to all commands for anything running in cron. Does it run in your shell?

I am using the attached reset script to run cron jobs but it is not working because my friend says that I have no access to lynx. Why don't the following commands work?
