I have three scripts login.php, auth_user.php, and function.php. The login.php script does user authentication and routes the user to auth_user.php. The function.php script, which contains process_function(), does some very intensive data processing and may take from 30 seconds to 3 minutes to run.
Here's what I have tried to do: // login.php script require("function.php"); ... ... do some authentication stuff ... process_function(); // makes user wait too long to get to the authenticated area include("auth_user.php"); // takes user to authenticated area If I try to run the process_function() from the login.php script, the script takes too long to run. How can I get this function to run so it does not interfere with user logging in? Is there a way to get the function to execute and let it run on its own within login.php and let the user continue on to the authenticated area without that delay? Another thought I had was to get the function.php script that contains the function to execute on its own based on time (e.g., run every hour on the hour). Is there a way to do that?
