command not working
Posted on 2009-05-08
I have a client that has 2 cpanel servers with me running joomla installations. He needs to execute this command within joomla I believe. One of the servers the command works just fine, the other though, it doesn't even though they're very similar builds.
$command="nohup mysql -u ".$user." -p".$password." ".$dbname." < ".$sqlfile;
It's not seeming to work and he did get it sort of work, but he's sitll saying there are problems. He used this command to get past it:
$command="/usr/bin/mysql -u ".$user." -p".$password." ".$dbname." < ".$sqlfile;
What Changed was:"nohup mysql -u " to "/usr/bin/mysql -u "
Does anyone know what's going on and why nohup would work on the one server and not on the other.
