I am having major probs trying to exec a command in PHP.
All i want to do is fill a table from a tab delimited file from within PHP.
I have set up a file called fillit which consists of:
mysqlimport -u user -ppassword database list.txt
This works from the command line perfectly.
I made this executable & it runs perfectly with .fillit
It will not run with exec, system or passthru.
I have tried nearly all possible combinations with and without backticks, single, 
double and no quotes.
I have rw access to the dir I am running from and have read the manual until I'm blue 
in the face!
Has anyone out there used the xece command successfully??
Ps if I exec("ls -l"), it works fine !

Linux box Using PHP 4.0.??. latest version MySql, Apache Slackware
