I have problem in executing linux command $output=exec("ls -a"); echo "<pre>$output</pre>";
the above coding works, but
$output=exec("cp file1 file2"); echo "<pre>$output</pre>";
does not works. can any one help me out of this problem
When I was executing the "cp" command it doesn't return anything. But it returned the name of the last file when i executed the "ls" command
try it on the command line ..
`cp file1 file2` doesn't return anything - so your script probably is working as it correctly returns nothing.
if you want to see output try
`cp -v file1 file2`
