You would need to write an additional PHP script (or modify your current script) to perform further parsing of the message.

You could define the following as your 2-way command:


If you sent in a text as follows:

Balance u xxxx p xxxx

Then the resulting command to be executed would be:


The "%20" looks a little funny in the URL ... but that's just URL escaping. When you access it from your script, your scripting language should convert it back into a space. (The space character needs to be escaped to be included in a URL.)

So the end result is that your script would need to parse the string "u xxxx p xxxx".

You could have a simple PHP script that did this parsing, then redirected to the existing PHP script with the parameters set as needed
