I use a python-based program on my webserver to download NZB files. The program is called hellanzb and resides in /var/www/nzb.
To shut the program down if it crashes I have to SSH into the box and execute the following command :
python hellanzb.py shutdown
This shuts the program down. Would it be possible to do this from a button on a web page. I have tried using the exec() and shell_exec() commands to try and run the command from a php page (pressing a button) but the command doesn't work as the server stays running.
What would the code or command be to get this to run ? Indeed, is it possible to execute a python script from php ?
Any help would be appreciated.
