I have a simply php script on my server and want it to be run every 2 minutes using a cron job.

I suspect the command syntax is wrong.
Do I need to add a command before the script url? Another way to run the script?
Any help is very much appreciated.
the cron-job will simply execute a program on the (local) machine.
a URL is NOT a program. it's a link to a ressource.
whether this ressource triggers a PHP-script execution is not of cron's business.
in any case, you could run a cron-job that will periodically visit a given URL. e.g. using the
wget command (a "non-interactive web-page downloader")
