Hi List,

I have a php page that updates data from one database to another when it is
My query is, how can I trigger the execution of this update page from
another php / javascript without the calling page having to wait for the
update page to finish?
Basically, I think the update page needs to use:
set_time_limit(0); // I don't think the script will take more than 1 min.

At the other end I found this:
2) On that page a user suggested using *pclose(popen(‘/usr/bin/php
/path/to/something.php > /dev/null &’, ‘r’)*
*    *However, I need this to be usable on windows servers also.
3) Finally, would pcntl_exec, pcntl_fork, exec or something be useful for

Which of the above 3 options is the better one?
Other suggestions are welcome :)

Thanks and Regards,
