I need a php script that will run and update fields in my database every hour. I was told that this can only be done with a cron script?

I'm clueless on how to setup my server so that it will run a cron script every hour to update my fields in my database. How do I setup my server to run a cron script? I've looked on google and I can't really find any good guides. Could someone explain to me step by step on setting up my server to run a page on my server hourly? I'm running a ubuntu server. My server API is Apache 2.0 Handler.

Thanks in advance,
Jon W
