    Shell

    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)

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $procName 
    "ftpd";
    echo 
    exec('kill ' $procName);
    ?>

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

    Check out the man pages for ps.

    example:

    $> 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.
