**** Solved **** run php process in background

Recommended Posts

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 &' );
