I've got a PHP script (running on Apache) that can take several hours
to complete. The script sends out a newsletter to those who have
requested it. When calling this script from a web browser, the browser
hangs until the script has fully executed. If the user hits "Stop"
while the script is running, it will terminate the script.
What is the best way to trigger this script? Is there a way to do it
without using a CGI script? I am basically wondering if there is a way
to create a "trigger this php page" script that will run the script on
Apache and not hang the browser. Also, are there any problems calling
MySQL from a PHP CGI script?
