Lightbulb Script to run php and check value in txt


I'm looking for a bash script, that I will run from cron, that executes a php script. After 5 minutes that the php script is executed, the bash script, must check a value in a text file /public_html/check.txt

if check.txt = 0 the script will stop, if check.txt is not = 0 it must execute again the php file and after 5 minutes check again /public_html/check.txt

Basically until check.txt = 0, it must be execute php file and check /public_html/check.txt (after 5 minutes)

Thanks Smilie
