Can anyone tell me how to execute a .bat file from a PHP script?
I have tried:
exec("C:\[path to file]"); system("C:\[path to file]");
Nothing is working. I've checked the PHP manuals and googled around but can't find a good answer. Anyone know where I'm going wrong?
I'm running Windows 2003 Server and have successfully manually run the .bat file and it does what I need it to; I just need to be able to launch it programatically.
You might need to run it via
system("cmd /c C:[path to file]");
<?php exec('c:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c START C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.bat'); ?>
