The php command exec doesn't work

Postby gianpagi » 31. October 2017 14:26

Hi,
i have a simple script :
Code: Select all
<?php
exec('K:\prova.bat',$out);
echo $out;
?>
where the prova.bat contains :
Code: Select all
c:/windows/system32/notepad.exe


When i run the the php file i don't receive any response from the server

The Apache process is not a windows service and in the php.ini there is no exclusions.
what could be the problem ?
Regards
Gianpaolo

You cannot execute .bat files, but .com and .exe instead. To run a batch file, which is interpreted by the command shell only, you must run the command shell and provide the batch file to that shell. The correct syntax should look like this example (i cannot run a test as i dont use Windows anymore):

Code: Select all
exec('cmd /c K:/prova.bat');
