That is it works with just me using the site. I am wondering how this would effect performance if say 500 people were executing this php function around the same time and the processing overlapped. Is there anyway to make an executable run as a service, I am guessing at the terminology that I should use here, but I feel there would be a much more efficient way of performing this task.
Well, ideally you don't run an executable. But if you must, there's some Windows program that turns an executable into a service. But then there's the consideration of communicating with it, which you could do with sockets. Or you could use a file.
