$output=exec("cp file1 file2"); echo "<pre>$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"
`cp file1 file2` doesn't return anything - so your script probably is working as it correctly returns nothing.
Thanks for help The problem is the file is not copied to destination folder. I experience the problem for all file modification commands like "mv" etc.. I am unable run a shell script file from php which contains file modification commands.
the scripts are probably running as a user with insufficient rights to perform those operations
to find out which user you are running as try
<?php echo `whoami`; ?>
