Hoi,

I have 5 exec comamnds like

<?php
echo exec('/tmp/run/example1.sh');
?>

How can I make a page where you ckick to activate the scripts, I don't have
GD so it can be text based.

Now it runs the scripts when the page is loaded, and that is not what I want.

Separate files:

index.html:
<a href="mypage1.php">click</a>
<a href="mypage2.php">click</a>

mypage1.php:
<?php
echo exec('/tmp/run/example1.sh');
?>

mypage2.php:
<?php
echo exec('/tmp/run/example2.sh');
?>

Hi,

I had that one as last option in mind but what I need is one page whitout opening new pages.
Just klik one a link or (better an image but text is also good) and that the script is running then.

Best regards,

Use a frame or a separate window, and change the target of the link accordingly.

Alternatively, have the page submit to itself, something like this:

<?php
switch($_GET['link'])
{
    case 1: echo exec('/tmp/run/example1.sh');
    break;
    case 2: echo exec('/tmp/run/example2.sh');
    break;
}
// or, instead of a switch, you could use this if numbered correctly:
// if(is_set($_GET['link']))
// echo exec('/tmp/run/example' . $_GET['link'] . '.sh');
?>
<a href="thispage.php?link=1">Click</a>
<a href="thispage.php?link=2">Click</a>
