    Default execute bash command with php script

    Hi

    Could someone tell me how to execute a linux shell command with PHP? I am
    using PHP as a bash script and want to issue the command;

    convert -sample 25%x25% $img thumb.$img

    It is just a simple script to convert jpg's into thumbnails and I am more
    at home with PHP than bash...

    Thanks

    eg. exec("convert -sample 25%x25% $img thumb.$img");

    But these functions are often disabled on public servers and you should
    also be aware that the command might be executed by the user running the
    web server (running PHP as CGI or with suexec wrapper is the cure for this).

    Thanks for the reply

    I have CGI installed in my PHP, how would I go about executing a command
    from within there? Could you elaborate please?

    Thanks
