How to make a cronjob execute URL?

[Not Solved] How to make a cronjob execute URL?
Hey all. Ok so before using Sentora i was able to use cron jobs to execute a URL the example url is this.
"www.domain.com/admin.php?resetStats=afak12Dkas4412"

How ever sentora will not allow me to execute a url as it wants a path. so how can i execute my example above using a path because i need the $_GET['resetStats'] to be equal to whats above.

Before i was using CentOS Web Panel and that allowed execution of commends/url so if anyone can help me out here that would be great.

I believe you are looking for this: Proper CRON setup
Second post. Just use a small php file to call the URL you need to run and have the Sentora cron job set to read the custom_cron.php file.

If the cronjob file is on your server, hosted in your site, you do not need to run the URL part.
Your custom_cron.php (from post 2 in the above link) should look like this:
PHP Code:
<?php
include('admin.php?resetStats=afak12Dkas4412');
?>
And be placed inside your site's root folder (where the main index.php is located)

Yes but the reason there is such a long string of numbers is so people cant randomly guess what the code is to reset stats so if i simply have a php file called cronjobs.php and have "include('admin.php?resetStats=afak12Dkas4412');" inside the php file if anyone runs http://www.test.com/cronjobs.php in there browser they will reset all points wont they? I need a way for only the cronjob manager to run the script and no one else. Is this something that can be done?
