PHP script execute another PHP script on windows

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is I'm guessing a simple question so sorry but I couldn't find an answer anywhere.

How can I execute a PHP script on windows from another PHP script? I know on linux you type PHP then the script name but on my windows computer it only works from command line when I type the full path to the directory with PHP in it, so is there a way to get PHP to tell me where it is or am I doing it all wrong?

Thanks,
Sam

You could try [a href=\"http://www.php.net/exec\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/exec[/a].

What are you doing that is going to be running for so long?

What I'm trying to do is send newsletters to a big list of people so I want it to run in the background 'cause it will take a while and I don't want to do it with the web browser incase I hit the stop button half way thru.

How would I use exec() to start another PHP script? wouldn't I need the path to PHP?

Thanks very much for your help.
