Currently the project I am working I launch the normal website, however at certain times I need to launch a process that takes a little long so instead of slowing down the main page I launch a pop-under to run the script and then close itself.

The problem is alot of people pop blocker block it and then the process does not get ran.

Does anyone have any ideas besides running a cron job where I can run this script without slowing down the main page? or a safe way to launch a popunder thats not blocked ?


exec( 'wget http://www.example.com/file.php > /dev/null &' );

suppose you could try some ajax...

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
