i dont know much about unix but i need to do this so...
how would i run
KILL processname
in unix from a php script?
like in windows you would create a .bat file with KILL processname or whatever then exec(); (although i cant get exec to work lol)

$procName = "ftpd";
echo exec('kill ' . $procName);

If your permissions won't allow exec(); , I believe
system(); will do the same thing.

Check out the man pages for ps.


$> ps aux

Will show you all the processes on the system.

So look in the man pages for the right flag to get the pid, then pipe that to the command.
