Does anyone have an experience with running an application on their (paid) webserver?
And mean CGI, I can run CGI (C written) programs from 'within' my PHP pages just fine.
But I'm trying to run a program that'll run seperate from a page being viewed.
If my server allows me to run programs on it, and gives me a home directory (not just my public_html dir), I figure I might be able to do this.
I thought of forking a CGI, or even making it execute a process seperately, but I have a strong feeling that they'll get terminated when the web page's execution time expires.
Also, I would like to go so far as to make the program run automatically when the server reboots. (But I doubt that one's even possible)
The server is Apache of course.
