    Have you looked into pcntl_fork() or running it in the background
via something as simple as backticks?  The latter of which,

`/bin/env php /path/to/socket2.php --port 1234 >> /path/to/log.txt 2>&1 &`;

    Expanding on that, you could do something like this:

exec('/bin/env php /path/to/socket2.php --port 1234 >>
/path/to/log.txt 2>&1 &',$ret,$err);

if ($err === 0) {

        exec('echo $$',$ret);
        $pid = $response[0];
        echo $pid.PHP_EOL;

} else {

        echo 'There was an error while forking the process.  Please
view the log.'.PHP_EOL;
