It thould be in the following format:

It really depends on what the timer is linked to, what event you want to occur, and if its client or server side.

I you just need something to happen once an hour, a cron job script could do this. Are you on a Linux server? If so, then you can write a PHP script and add it to your crontab to execute once an hour.

Here is a good introduction to cron jobs
If you aren't on Linux or have access to cron jobs, you can have pseudo cron jobs
