General :: Executing PHP File And Read Output To Program

Jun 29, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu and I'm programing with eclipse CDT. My goal is to execute a php file and read the output to my c++ program. To do so I thought I should use fork(), dup2() and execl. When in shell, the call "php myscript.php" worked just fine, but when in c++ I tried:
execl("usr/bin/php", "php", "home/geiger/workspace/SemiServer/server_content/myscript.php", NULL);
And it didn't work (the process wasn't terminated and I got no output). I tried different version of this call, like losing the "php" string and/or drop "home/geiger" from the path string, to no better result.

Programming :: Script For Executing A Program And Doing String Comparison

May 6, 2009

I am fairly new to linux still and I'm currently trying to write a shell script (which I have never done) that is supposed to run the xrestop(like top) program. What I want to do is execute the program and check the identifier column to see if a certain program is running. If it is running I want to strip the data from that row of the terminal say every 5 seconds or so and put it in a text file. Is this going to be a complicated thing?

Heres a list of the columns when you run xrestop program res-base Wins GCs Fnts Pxms Misc PxmMem Other Total PID Identifier.

Programming :: Cuting/executing Text From A File?

Aug 25, 2010

I need a way to read and delete text found before a unique string, then delete the string. I would like to have the text stored in a variable--or better yet--executed it as a shell script directly.I intend to execute the stored text in bash. It does not matter much what language the program is it, however efficiency is desirable. This script is not going to be used on large files, but it may be executed many times sequentially so the faster the script works the better. Here is an example:

exclamation-"It worked!"
echo $exclamation

Ubuntu Servers :: Executing PHP File Via Command Line

Nov 16, 2010

I have a php file that I need to execute via a cronjob. This file should be run by the www-data user as its a file in my /var/www/project folder. When I run this file under root (php -f cron.php) everything works perfectly, but I want it to run under the www-data to be safe. Before I run it vai crontab I tried it via command line as the www-data user and I receive errors:

Fatal Error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes expired (tried to allocate 232 bytes).

But when I run it as the root user I get no errors and everything works correctly. The file cron.php is used to process automated tasks in my CRM. So I don't really want to have the root user running a crontab every few minutes for this.

Must the www-data user be given more permissions? I am using Ubuntu 6.06LTS
PHP - 5.1.2
Apache - 2.0.55
MySQL - 5.0.22

General :: Read And Execute Permissions For Executing The File

Mar 2, 2010

Binary files need only execute permission to execute. No read permission is required. But all executable files must be read by the kernel into main memory before executing. Also script files need both read and execute permissions for executing the file.

General :: Executing The Default Application Assigned To A File Type?

Dec 10, 2010

Using gnome terminal (Ubuntu 10.10), is there a way to execute the default application associated to a file type, only by typing its name, as it is possible with Windows ?

For example, say I create a mime type associated to every file with the pattern *.abc. Lets say I associate this file type to application 'my_app'.

If I have file 'my_file.abc' in current folder, what I want is that when I enter only 'my_file.abc' at the prompt, it executes 'my_app' feeding it with 'my_file.abc' as first argument. (assuming of course 'my_app' is in the path)

Ubuntu :: Permission Denied Errors When Executing A File On A Different Hard Drive?

Sep 8, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 beta yesterday and most of it is working very well. However, I ran into a problem with permissions today.I have a HDD containing my home folder and a HDD containing my data folder. The HDD with the data folder is mounted on /media/data/data_1.

jensen@jensen-desktop:~$ ll /media/data/ | grep data_1
drwxrwxrwx 8 jensen jensen 4.0K 2010-09-07 23:10 data_1/[code]....

I made sure I had set a+x rights on the file, tried executing it as root but the permission error stayed.When I copy that same file to my Desktop folder I can perfectly execute it.When it's located on the other hard drive I can't. I tried several command line scripts and they all work when I execute them from my OS hard drive,but not from another hard drive.
