Executing .sh scripts via PHP





I have a few game servers that that I need to run shell scripts for frequality. I'm trying to figure out how to run these scripts via a webpage on the same server. It's a Ubuntu Dedicated server.

The website files are located via /var/www/... The .sh files I need to manually run are located in /home/amservers/.../start.sh.

I've looked at other answers and I still can't figure it out. How do locate the files and store it and then run exec()?

You could just use the shell_exec() function in PHP:


shell_exec('sh script.sh');

And if you want to use the variables ($1, $2 etc. in bash) you could just type:

shell_exec('sh script.sh variable1 variable2');
