View Full Version : [ubuntu] shell_exec not working in XAMPP

April 14th, 2010, 06:12 AM
I am trying to run a PHP script that uses shell_exec.
But shell_exec gives no output.
It works for commands like ls, but not for the one I am trying to run.
I think it may be a permissions issue, but not sure.

Right now any work around will do, I'm on a really tight deadline, and security is NOT an issue. I just need to get this to work.
If someone could tell me how to find the username of my server (I think it is 'nobody'), and the default password, then at least I could try running the commands in terminal as that user. (I already checked in the terminal using my normal account)
