Hey, I've compiled a binary on Linux
I've run the following on the binary:

chmod 777 updateBeta;
chmod +s updateBeta;
chown www-data:www-data updateBeta;

I have a PHP script to call it, (user www-data)

echo "updating...";
system("/home/virtual/site1/fst/var/www/updateBeta");

When I call it from the web browser, it only says "updating..." with no output from my binary.

How can I get this binary to execute using the web browser?
