You'll need to add a crontab job to do this. If you haven't heard of
cron, I suggest you either read up on it ("man cron" and "man
crontab") or talk to someone with a bit more UNIX experience. You'll
probably want to edit the sample rundig script a bit if you want to
use this as an automatic script.

(Or see the rundig.sh script at
<http://www.htdig.org/files/contrib/scripts/> for the script I use
under cron.)

Your crontab line will probably look something like this:
0 4 * * * /opt/htdig/bin/rundig.sh
