When it comes to the user end, they wont wait for more than 1 min. So
redirection after generating the report is not possible. But creating link
may be a good idea. How can it be done? I mean shouldn't there be a service
running in the server to process these request after the execution of the
php script is completed? Also shouldn't we post all the report generation
request to a database so that serial processing can be done?
