I'm having problem executing a perl script in php script.
I have simple php script which should execute a perl script:
PHP script is:
echo "ping started";
Perl script is:
print "perl started";
exec `ping 192.168.1.1`;
When I run command "php start.php" in command line it successfully runs ping.pl which in it`s turn pings to 192.168.1.1. I have "echo" in php script which should print "ping started" and "print" in perl script which should print "perl started". This is done just to be sure that perl is running. The interesting thing is that though it is running perl script and makes ping to 192.168.1.1(I'm checking it with "ps -A | grep ping") start.php output is only "ping started"(echo in start.php but doesn't print "perl started", print in ping.pl).
The actual problem is that when I try to run start.php from in a browser from a client PC it prints "perl started" but doesn't make ping(I'm testing it again using "ps -A | grep ping").
Could someone please tell why start.php runs ping.pl from a command line but not from a browser?
Thanks in advance,
