Start an asyncronous script from a cgi page?
Posted on 2002-03-25
I need to start a script that runs for a few hours using a cgi page. I can simply run the script from the browser, but the user will have to wait these few hours (and will most probably time out) and I don't want this. I want to be able to just run the script independantly of the browser...
Is there a way to do this? Say, can I schedule a cronjob with a cgi page? Or is there another solution?
