Running a script on the side

Recommended Posts


Can any help me out?

I have a large script which takes a long time to run and all the output is to a SQL database.

Is there anyway of executing a script on the side (if you like) but then hot having to wait for it to finish.

For example a script tells the server to execute another script in the background while the 1 first script continues to tell the user that the large script is running in the background.

Thanks in advance.

I do not think you will be able to do that. PHP is a server side script. So that means the script has to run in it's entirety on the server before if even outputs anything on the screen for you.

I could be wrong but that is my understanding of how php works. Maybe some of the other Masters can give you a little more info.
